A week at Nursery School

I can’t believe that Monkey has spent a week at Nursery School already. He’d been at a different pre-school for a year, but doesn’t deal very well with change and is a bit of a cling-on, so I had no expectations of an easy transition. I was expecting tears, maybe not on day one, but definately on day two when the realisation of it all sunk in.  I thought we’d be bound to have a few accidents, he does tend to leave going to the toilet to the last nano second.  Monkey has amazed me, we have had no tears at all, no toilet issues.  We’ve had a few nights of ‘Mummy I don’t feel very well’ but every morning he’s asked me how long it is until school opens.  We trot up the alleyway to school, chatting all the way and he’s been happy to go into his classroom.

Every morning I’ve wondered if today will be the day we have a wobble. But no, he takes me to his peg, we take his coat off and walk over to his group circle.  He sits down and gives me a kiss.  He’s happy.  This morning he turned to me and said ‘Go Home Mummy’!

So that told me!  He’s happy, he’s settled.  I won’t ruin the moment by talking about the mess that is his school uniform, I’ll leave that for another day!

I’m so proud of my little Monkey, a week at Nursery School and he doesn’t want me there, he doesn’t need to cling on to me, or anyone else for that matter.  The boy done good.

Linking this up with Small Steps Amazing Achievements this week as he continues to amaze me.

 

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Aww. Sounds like he has settled in nicely. Xavier went back to pre-school yesterday (he only does three half days but he is slightly younger than Monkey) – his first session in big boy pants so the toilet thing was worrying me too! No tears or accidents here either 🙂

  2. He looks so grownup in his uniform! Very smart 🙂
    What a lovely post. As mine starts reception tomorrow, every post like yours makes me feel so full of hope! Thanks!

  3. He really is doing so well and looks so grown up in his uniform. I’m glad it has gone so well for you both.
