This school mum business is seriously kicking my arse this week and it's only Tuesday. I thought it would get easier as the weeks went on, but it's only getting harder. Drop offs are more traumatic then ever, anxiety and exhaustion are in overload. And the notices - every day -something to remember, something to sign, belongings lost or left behind . Sigh.
We're only three weeks in and my usually happy boy is already playing the 'I'm to sick for school' card. It's a huge change for him, so much to take in, to learn, to remember, so much new. It's overwhelming. His little mind is in overload. I just want to swaddle him up, protect him from everything and hold his hand along the way. But I know this is something he'll have to face and overcome and simply just get used too.
I know we'll find our groove, fall into a routine and school will become second nature... eventually...
Being a mum is hard.
