Pre-Schooler no more....!!

Today my eldest J, attended the first of 4 taster/warming sessions for 'big school'. Its not big school at all, in fact its the start of the next 12 year chapter in her life, starting at the "little" school. But compared to nursery, its "big".

We are not upset at this new chapter, like many mums claim they are, and I don't think I will be one of them crying as she goes in for her very first full school day.... I will be the one with the huge smile, and big wave, waving her off to the next exciting challenge. After all, she will be coming home again in 6 and a half hours time... and probably full of her stroppy moods from being over tired, and over stimulated. And mummy gets more 1:1 quality time with S, before she then starts nursery the following Easter term.
 
J is a very sociable little girl, and full of confidence, so she is taking this all in her stride... today she ran off to hold the teachers hand when they collected the children. she had never met them before... this worries me a little, due to the stranger danger... but I had been explaining the whole procedure all week so there would only be excitement...
 
But this has made me realise that the saying that when you first announce that first pregnancy.... everyone always said "Enjoy every minute, the time will fly...." it sure has.... here is the change from baby, to toddler, to pre-schooler, to my little 'big' girl......
 

 
 
J has enjoyed every one of her nursery's.... yep... she has been to 3 in total... here is her on her 1st ever day back in January 2013.
 
and in her previous nursery's uniform...
 
But I am hoping that even though she will be spending 32.5hours at school that she will keep her crazy personality...
 
Fingers crossed, that she will do as she is told, and not rebel, and will continue to be sociable, confident, and carry on enjoying her journey into learning, she sure does enjoy learning to read, write and count... but I know this is just the start of a long journey.... roll on September....

    1. I have heard the same... im loving her personality so much at the moment, so I hope she doesn't turn into a mini me, and be a bag of hormones and stroppy when she starts.... :-/

  2. How lovely to see your baby grow over the years. But, she's not really yours. She has a mind and personality of her own. She might go through stroppy stages, but continue to love her.

  3. Your little girl is all grown up... "big" school is a big deal... and yes it will more likely change her a little but it doesn't have to be a negative change... she will grow more confident, make new friends... changes like this are a good thing.
    Enjoy the summer together!

  4. I remember when I started "big school", I hated it at first, but looking back it was amazing. Oh to be that age again!

    1. I remember all the 'cool' things the teachers did... like pretend dragons are real... and made footprints over the playground... fingers crossed her new school will be just as creative, then I know she will have a ball... :-)
