The prompt for today’s Blogtober is Education, which is highly appropriate for me as I have some exciting news.
However, I used Education as my word of the week just a few weeks ago so this week I’m using School!
Yesterday we went to visit a new school for the Little Man and he will be starting on Monday! It’s a little bit further away than I’d hoped, but it’s a really good school and it seems perfect for the Little Man. The distance is no problem in the car, but if I had to fetch him for any reason I’d have to catch the bus. A scary prospect, but not impossible. I also have a friend who lives nearby with a child in the same school, so we could travel together.
The Little Man is really excited, he’s been to see his new classroom and teacher and recognised a couple of faces of children he’s been to school with before. (A lot of children have left his previous school.)
I know it will be best for him but a part of me is feeling sad. I’ve really enjoyed teaching him, we’ve had so much one to one time together. I also like learning and teaching so it’s been really enjoyable for me. It’ll be sad waving him off again in the morning and not seeing him all day. He is my baby after all.
Star was sent home from school after falling up the stairs again. She really need to be more careful. She was okay, just a little sore, but she hurt her shoulder, which then caused her neck to hurt.
On the morning she’d been complaining about her neck being sore so hurting it more was not good. She also complained about her jaw (she has TMJ disorder) so I’d given her a couple of ibuprofen. I’d guessed it wasn’t going to be a good day at school, but I didn’t expect another fall.
Thankfully, Star’s school is really good with her and they know it’s best to send her home rather than make her stay at school with any issues like this. With her EDS and surgery, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Thankfully, we didn’t think it necessary for a trip to A&E.
So that’s my week, what have you been up to?
