Georgie has asked for money to buy something from the school canteen. Brand new scary territory for me, guys. So here’s my question: Do you give your child money to take to school?
I’m still tripping over the fact that Georgie put on a uniform one morning last week and is now a Primary school student… I barely got any sleep the night before and ran around like a crazy person in the morning being over-dramatic about everything and failing to take a single good photo. And then to top things off, Georgie experienced a bit of separation anxiety.
This weekend, between going to Comic Con and enjoying my last mind-numbing late night Netflix moments before Georgie starts school, I did some research on lunchbox containers. I’ve been telling myself I should get Georgie a really good one since last year but I haven’t been able to make up my mind. Take a look at my top picks and tell me what you think.
Every year towards the end of August, I feel the dire need to organise, to sort myself out, mentally and physically. You see, September is my January. That time of year when I make some much-needed life adjustments/resolutions that simply work wonders for a highly-stressful individual such as myself who thrives on a rigid and specific routine. This year I’m thinking of implementing an afternoon one for Georgie. What do you think? Do your kids have after-school schedules?
One of the first things I noticed about Georgie when he first started school last year was his hesitation in telling me how his day was. I realised things had gone from bad to worse when the other day after an afternoon lesson he huffed and puffed and finally said: I don’t have to tell you everything! Let’s skip that in ten years a remark like that will probably scar me for life and go straight to the fact that it was obvious I was asking the wrong question.
