Today was Little Prince's first day back at school, and his first day in the Juniors. He spent most of yesterday telling us how terrified he was feeling, whilst also being really excited about seeing his friends again. He will have the same teacher he has had for the last two years, the four teachers have shuffled around classes, and one of the main reasons was so that Little Prince could carry on having the same teacher he was used to :-) I know it isn't the only reason, but I really appreciate the care and thoughtfulness from his teacher and the school :-) I have been emailing with his teacher, letting her know how Little Prince is (or more accurately isn't!!) behaving, forewarned is forearmed and all that!! She has also let me know that she has a family situation that could mean she has to take time off suddenly, so that I can prepare Little Prince and help him cope, if possible!
I've just had a phone call from the Educational Psychologist who is coming to see me at home on Thursday, to update his information about Little Prince, as part of the assessment to see if he needs a Statement of Special Educational Needs.
My mobile hairdresser has just been and trimmed my hair, so now I can see past my shaggy dog fringe!! I feel so much better now, having my hair in my eyes gives me a headache and makes me feel all scruffy, so now my headache has gone and I feel a lot smarter :-)
I've washed all the bedding from Little Prince's old toddler bed, as someone from Freecycle is coming to collect it in an hour or so. He doesn't cope very well with changes and has refused to move into a big bed, but he is so tall he really doesn't fit in the toddler bed any more, not surprising really as he is 7 1/2!! He knows the bed and bedding are going, and is very upset, so its probably best that they go while he is at school and tonight he and Mr Messy can finish the last bits on his new slide bed. Hopefully he will sleep well and not just mess about up and down the slide all night!!!
