Back in January i wrote about my thoughts on Tilly starting school in September 2014. The post can be found here . So here we are! today is the day that everyone finds out where their little 4 year olds will be going to school in september.
Am i now ready for tilly to start school? No!
Do i still wish i could keep her home and teach her from the world that surrounds her? Yes
Do I think Tilly will cope with school? No! she still gets so tired and has a sneaky little afternoon nap on most days and when i collect her from school after she has been there all day - she is so tired and often asleep before dinner.
Am i worried about whether i did chose the right school? Yep!
Am i Scared of the massive change about to happen in our life? Oh yes
So here I am just after Midnight knowing that today will be the start of Matilda's future and the day that my heart will break even more as i have to face up to the fact that my little girl is growing up way too fast for my liking. I Know she needs school, but she has a lot of growing up to do before school starts in september and i don't know quite how i am going to get her out of wearing dressing up clothes all the time! I don't think she will wear a school uniform because i know she wont like the colour of it - it isnt going to be yellow, pink or purple! but i do have a little plan - i have been buying a few bits of uniform and popping them on her dressing up rail as a school girl dress up, so hopefully when it comes to wearing the uniform, she will think its a dressing up outfit.
It is also exciting for Tilda, as she is about to embark on a new adventure and i am sure once she gets used to it, she will love it.
I wish everyone good luck with the school admissions process and i hope you get the first choice school place you applied for.
*UPDATE* Tilly got into her prefered school :)
