Starting school

This was originally on the BBC Ouch! Website

He's just started longer the nursery I was writing about before. But now he's going....with the uniform! .He's included in his brother's and cousin's primary school. The kids who start in reception get let in gradually - he's staying for just the mornings until October, at which point he becomes a full time pupil. This is a world away from the prognosis we were given on the day he was born: That he may not amount to much. Our boys and their cousins are now at the same school and we are proud parents. When Stan was born, I felt that a lot of the magic of birth was taken from me. On his first day in school proper, I got a bit of that back.
