I haven't had two minutes spare in the last week! This week Cheeky Monkey No.1 starts school for the first time, Cheeky Monkey No.2 starts a new nursery and I start back at work.
I still haven't managed to find some PE shorts for CM1. And her name labels haven't yet arrived from Marks & Spencer. I might be more stressed as a result, but luckily CM2 was more than happy to start nursery today, was absolutely shattered on her return home, and went to bed fairly easily, bearing in mind the nightmare of a week we have had trying to get her to calmly go to sleep in her new cot bed (see previous posts).
It's late. And I don't suppose the girls will sleep through the night, if the rest of this week is anything to go by, so I'm afraid I only have brief words of wisdom today.
1. Don't convert a child's cot into a cotbed days before you start back to work after a summer break.
2. Don't leave school uniform purchases, including name labels, until the last minute.
3. Do get your school shoes from M&S. They are apparently "scuff resistant". I'm looking forward to testing that claim!
4. Do enjoy time off with toddlers.... How quickly time flies and before you know it they are at school!
