Missy Moo starts school

My second baby, otherwise known as Missy Moo, started school today - sorry, BIG school as its been referred to EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR 6 MTHS PLUS!!! She has been SO excited and literally counting down the days. I bought her a calendar so she could count down the days. Literally.

Over the last couple of months we've been getting things ready, we bought uniforms, we bought the school bag and hat, we bought glue sticks in bulk as experience tells me we use ALOT of those babies. We've bought hair clips and ties in school colours, we've bought drink bottles and lunch boxes and practiced opening and closing them and packets and zip lock bags and well, you get the picture. The excitement has been epic. Epic I tell you. 

Her first day she was scheduled to start at 11.10. She was up and dressed at 6.30 and asked approximately every 2 mins from then on, 'is it 11 o'clock yet?' Excitement was epic.

Finally it was time to go and the considering the excitement, and what a little poser she is, I was expecting her to proudly stand at the school gate for a photo. Nope, tears and a whimper of 'daddddddyyyyyyy' emerged. Turns out she was nervous about big school after all. She looked soooo sad....

She only wobbled for a moment though, a cuddle seemed to fix it and she was good to go again, holding firmly onto Daddy's hand the whole way in. We went through the formalities and soon enough we were at the classroom, meeting her teacher (who is lovely) and saying goodbye. Daddy's hand was released and Missy Moo went straight into the classroom, exploring and touching everything - she said a quick goodbye and off she went. We were officially no longer required.

We both went to pick her up and she proudly walked down to the playground, beaming and clutching her drawing of the day. BIG school is a huge hit and she can't wait to come back tomorrow. Her teacher told us she was quiet to start with but came out of her shell as the day went on, and even showed them some of her dancing. Yep, she's gonna rule that place before we know it. Watch out world, Missy Moo is loose and coming at ya, full speed!

I couldn't be prouder of how she handled it and have no doubt she will love school.
