(Not so) Wordless Wednesday - Tom's 1st day at Nursery!


I can't leave this wordless.... It's too special a day!

Today is Tom's first day at "big" nursery! He spent a few months doing one day a week at Applebossom in the last school year, but now he's moved up to Appletree which is the proper 16hrs per week nursery. 

He was a little nervous, but his key worker came to visit yesterday. He has the same lady that Jack had when he was there so that's nice already. She had a lovely chat with him, and he showed her his Squishy toy, his pony collection, and the games he likes to play on my iPad. When she said she had some ponies he could play with today he warmed up no end!

Today me and Jack walked him to his class, put his stuff away, and and Jack talked to him about the class - which made him feel very special and grown up too. Luckily when he was at Appleblossom he got to have his lunch in the Appletree room so he knew the place well enough, knew where the toilet was, where the toys are and so on. That made him feel at home straight away.

I expected him to have a bit of a meltdown when we left, but he didn't. He was on the hunt for some of the bead toys he'd seen in reception and when there were none in the class his key worked offered to go and get the one he'd seen on his way in. He followed her out and carried it back to class himself. At this point I said bye bye and he cheerily called "Byeee" back. He's such a different child to who he was a year ago, or even just 6 months ago!

Wednesday is his short day. He'll be having lunch about now, and in 15mins or so I'll get Georgie ready to go out and we'll go and fetch him. I think he's going to have had a lovely time! I hope he brings some nice things home with him. He loves to draw and paint!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
