This time last year I did an interview with Matthew who was then entering pre-school at the time. One year on and he has been going to big school almost two weeks already. I was curious to see what his answers would be now a year later. Year by year his speech would also improve. In fact he talks a lot now.
Last Thursday we probably reached one of the biggest milestones yet. After so many years of spending his time in creche, he entered the big school life. It’s hard to believe that time has come already. He looks so grown up in his uniform. It’s very surreal.
We are heading into the weekend already. As I write this, my now five year old has completed two days of school this week. He is now watching some well deserved Lego City. The week has gone super fast. I had three days off this week and it’s back to normality next week. I could get used to dropping him and collecting him from school though.
Today we celebrated a special day… your birthday. I can’t believe you turned five years old already. You were definitely spoilt all weekend and you deserve it of course.
I can’t believe I am actually writing this. My little baby boy is going to turn five at the end of this month. It is kind of a big deal. It means he is going to start big school just days after his birthday. Not sure if he is ready, or if it just me that is not ready to let him go to big school. I am sure he will do just fine. For his birthday we are planning to have it in a play centre with all his creche friends. His actual birthday is the day after which is a Monday. I am not going to overdo it with presents but I would like to treat him with two or three that he will enjoy and not just play with once.
A while ago I started decorating the kids bedrooms. It is a never ending project. I want it to be perfect and end up getting more little bits and pieces. But I think I finally have Matthew’s bedroom nailed. One wall still looks a bit too pale for me but I haven’t figured out what I am going to do with it yet.
