The week before big school. By Emily Drake @emsdrake

Extra jobs on Mummy’s to do list this week:

·      Labelling – 36 individual items of clothing, 36 iron-on labels.* PANIC* - Do I even have 36??

·      Order more labels 

·      Practise leaving the house at 8.45am at least once.

·      Book haircuts  

·      Tart up the house and polish the front door for our teacher and TA visit 

·      More ‘YES’ – Yes, to that ‘onnnnnnnnne more book, mummy’ before bed.  Yes, to that ‘Can we watch this movie with Mummy?’.  Yes, to that ‘Mummy, Can I have a magNazine? (sp!)’ because we absolutely need more cheap plastic Hello Kitty/My Little Pony/Charlie and Lola/Frozen crap. Yes, to the fondant fancy before tea. ‘Mummy, Can you lie with me in bed?’. Yes, yes, YES! 

(‘Can I drink your Diet Coke Mummy?’  Don’t push it kid. That’s still a NO)  

·      Double the amount of kisses and snuggles  

This is our last week before BIG SCHOOL.  Freya seems totally unfazed about what lies ahead.  Mummy is apprehensive.  

I hope she settles in quickly, I hope she likes her teacher, I hope she listens to her teacher.

I hope she meets her BFF… as I did, I hope she eats her lunch, I hope she finds the toilet without any trouble.

I hope someone hugs her when she is sad, I hope we don't forget her PE kit, I hope nobody tells her the truth about Father Christmas.

I hope she misses us (but not too much!), I hope she flourishes, I hope we make it on time.....! 

I couldn’t be more proud of my 4 year old, who surely is just too little to be of school age. What happened to my baby girl??  It’s going to be an emotional few weeks.  

I love you lots Freya Mae Drake.
