“Her behaviour is beyond anything we’ve ever had to deal with”

I’m struggling to remember the last time that I went a whole day or even half a day without having to tell P1 off for something or argue with her. Life seems to be a constant battle – parents against child. Her behaviour is beyond anything we’ve ever had to deal with before. She’s become really rude and I’m really …

“I’m walking 6.4miles a day”

P1 started her new school today. I had the alarm set for 6:30 but didn’t manage to actually get out of bed until 7. It took about half an hour to walk 1.6miles – exactly what good old Google said.I left P2 at home with hubby and P1 was allowed to use the pushchair. I know that so many people …

“P1 has been counting down the day”

Today we said goodbye to getting up at 7:45am. We said goodbye to breakfast at 8:10am. We said goodbye to leaving the home at 8:35 to get to school for 8:40am. We said goodbye to P1 walking the whole journey. Today we said goodbye to being home by 9am. We said goodbye to our afternoons, leaving at 2:35 and being …

“Today topped it off when the school received their Ofsted report”

We’ve put the icing on top of a cake that’s slowly been created. Sorry, this post isn’t about yummy treats, it’s about P1s education. We uprooted our family to Sevenoaks nearly 5 months ago to start a complete fresh and better life. The schools are better, the lifestyle is better and the people are nicer. If you’re a loyal reader …

“Something’s up with P2 tonight”

Something’s up with P2 tonight. I can’t quite put my finger on it. She did her usual “I want to go to bed” signs of only wanting me, resting her head on me and getting very emotional. So I did the usual – bum change, pjs on, GroBag on, placed in cot and have her milk feed. That’s when the …

“It’s 1996. I’m starring as Mary”

It’s 1996. I’m starring as Mary along side my class mate who is Joseph for the afternoon. I’m wearing a long blue dress that I keep tripping on. Joseph has dropped baby Jesus and the audience of parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles are laughing. I’m nervous and shy as I look out to see my Grandad with his bulky camcorder …

“first ever school parents evening”

After school every single day I am faced with this scenario: Me: did you have a good day at school? P1: yes. Me: great. What did you do? What did you have for dinner? P1: I don’t know. I can’t remember. I can nearly guarantee that you all know of or have experienced this scenario. (If you haven’t I’d like …

I was excited to receive and learn about a new iPad interactive toy called Tiggly Shapes. The shapes are made from plastic and have soft silicone touch points so they don’t damage your iPad. There are four shapes; star, square, triangle …

“School seems to be ruining everything I worked hard to create”

I spoke to the teacher this morning about P1s hair incident. I wish I hadn’t now to be honest. Ok, the teacher was extremely apologetic and I felt reassured that she was going to speak with P1 and the girl involved. However, when getting her home today and asking her about her day at school she owned up to actually …
