Getting Things Sorted

The Kid starts Grade One in two weeks time. It’s hard to believe. I’m sure I’ll be saying that on his first day of matric, too. Last year I was completely unprepared – I lost the list of things he needed for his first day (blaming pregnancy brain) and we arrived empty-handed and he was devastated. I hadn’t covered his files, he didn’t have a water bottle/sunblock/tissues or anything. I felt so awful for being such a bad, forgetful mom.

This year, I’m getting everything ready, well in advance. We bought his uniforms yesterday and I will get the rest of the things he needs, today. I will label every single little thing. I have Superman wrapping paper for his files. We bought a whiteboard to do his weekly schedule (swimming, karate, homework etc) and a reward chart.

This year, we will be organized. This year, we will get it done right.

He’s excited at the prospect of a new school year, a new class and a newer, more big-boy uniform.

This is him, trying on his new threads, in the store yesterday. (When did he get so tall?)

    Priceless moment 🙂
    Good luck with the first year of primary school. It’s not that bad as what others always say or you might hear. It’s actually a great experience.

    good luck with the first day of “big school” its always so exciting but once they get into grade one they suddenly grow up

  3. Its a bitter sweet moment sending your wee person to Grade 1 for the first time. It’s an emotional day for them, but more importantly you.

    It’s a brilliant idea to be prepared and you seem to have everything under control.

    You also reminded me that I should be covering books!!

    Happy New Year!
