yesterday! I cannot believe my little baby is at school already! It's fantastic really (and I am getting so much done around here!!) but I am so used to her being around and now, well, she's not!

She even came home with homework on her first day! I felt rather spesh sitting down and helping her do it last night. It was a little book we had to read called 'Me'. She clearly knew it by heart already as she 'read' it to me three times, lol!

Anyway, I wanted to share with you this happy little face - she was just so excited to finally be going. I only hope the love of school lasts!

Thats a big bag :D I think you could probably fit her in it!

My first day of school I was clasping the seatbelt mechanisim trying to keep it locked and kicking mum as she tried to get me out of the car :P

I'd been in and out of hospital since the meningitus at 4 1/5 and I suppose I was afraid it was some strange new hospital with more needles.

I still loathe needles! I don't quite faint when it's neccesary to have a shot, but it's a close thing at times :(

I hope she likes school once the novelty wears off :D

Our kids are about to start a continuance of their education, one in Dunedin and the other in Christchurch. It's a bit quiet having an empty nest ......
Louise, I trust that you are doing something to delay the empty nest.

Not on your nelly LR. Amy is just going to have to content herself with furry four-legged brothers and sisters because she sure aint getting any 'uman ones! :p [:0] (assuming that is what you meant).

I enjoyed school, for the most part but for Nick (who is mildy dyslexic and was schooled in the UK in the 60's and 70's) it was a place of torture. I think he has been/is very worried about Amy and how she will get on so this is quite a worrying time for him. He's very protective of his little girl (as all daddy's are) and I could see him watching all the other kids like a hawk when school finished yesterday. Amy was the one who was running when she was supposed to be walking and talking when she was supposed to be being quiet - seems she takes after her mum in that respect!. She is a pretty gregarious self-confident little pixie so, finger's crossed, school will be a wonderful experience for her.

Yes Sod, Opaki - It seems such a nice little school and I am really pleased we are zoned for it :)

Isn't she cute? She looks so happy and excited! I'm sure she'll love it.

Kiwi303, if you were younger, you could be my eldest when he started school. He wasn't too bad the first day, but by day two he was crying and hanging onto my leg like a limpit when I left, and the teacher had to hold him back. That lasted for 7 weeks. Then we moved and he started a new school and the same thing happened, I think that time it only lasted 5 weeks.

You know what go him past his fear of strange situations? Drama school. He only lasted one term, but it did wonders for his confidence. In fact, he turned into a show off :rolleyes:. Loves having the main part when his class does assembly and he wants to be a TV presenter. He's 11 now and will be starting High School in a couple of years, hopefully that will be a better experience for all of us.

His younger brother started school without so much as a murmur, but I think him already being familiar with the school, through dropping off and picking up his brother, helped.

Now I just have one more to go, he'll be starting in a year. The three boys will have one year when they are all at the same school, which will be nice.

Seaside, believe me K303 has made up for it since and certainly doesnt need to go to drama school.. I can imagine you doing that somehow K303....and your poor mother doing her duty and carrying on with the driving.
woops I hit sent instead of enter.. I cant believe that it is 5 yrs and yes she is a purrfect poppet and Im sure Omar will see that she has no trouble with her words and does all her homework on time..

Aww, Lou, I went goosey all over. I remember when she was born. Oh how fast they grow and she looks "yummy" in all those lovely colours ~ a bit like a lollypop :-)

You would laff Beedee. This morning I could not get Amy out of bed because Omar was in there with her. She and that cat are joined at the hip, literally most of the time! The mutual adoration is really quite something. That cat is something else. He still drives me completely batty but he's Amy's very bestest friend ever and, of course, featured prominently in the drawing of her family that she did at school yesterday.

Gee she is CUTE!!! What a stunning child Louise.

My boy (another one and only) starts in two weeks! I am not dealing with it too well, not that he knows mum is a nervous wreck. He is an extremely shy quiet boy with a stutter but very much ready for school as he wants to learn, learn, learn at the moment. I am so scared about how he is going to cope with his shyness and stutter but he has a great teacher and has had weekly school visits all last term so kind of knows what to expect. He doesn't fully understand that I will be actually leaving him there on his own soon.

I am, to be honest, quite gutted it has come around so quickly and I am going to miss him hanging out with me all day. And I just know I am going to cry lots on February the 16th :(

Louise please expect lots of questions from me over the next few weeks[;)]

Lets see... Primary school... Waikato Swords club, running round trying to kill people with swords. Secondary school, Waikatos swords as before + school fencing team (Captain of) and the Cadet unit, running around with assault rifles trying to kill people. University, Kendo club, running around with bigger swords trying to kill people. Working, Hunting, running around with guns trying to kill anything furry...

Team sports and club events are good for boosting the confidence level and increasing social skills and friend networks :D any future kids of mine, once I find miss right and turn her into mrs mine, I'm planning to get interested in either scouts, cubs, brownies, boys and girls rally, or cadets. Depending on which are closest to where-ever I and the future missus end up :P

What sort of extra curriculum activities are you planning on getting Amy enrolled in Lou? Girl Guides? Craft group? Swim club?

Louimay, I feel for you. I think the biggest and most important thing for any child is to be loved and supported and I reckon your boy has that in spades :) . I thought I would cry and am amazed I didn't but I think that is because I am very confident that Amy is going to be fine and it sounds to me like you are not so. You have done the right thing with the visits - I think he might surprise you. I sure hope he does :)

K303, she already does dance and swimming after school and has her pony so hopefully, for now, that's plenty! :) Gawd, I suppose in the next couple of years there will be sport too - argh!
