Yes "back to school",I use to dread those three words when I was a child,horrible uniform,chilly mornings and feel like I had a million butterflies in my tummy.
Having had a lovely summer doing basically nothing,lol.
now of course I'm all grown up and it's my children I'm teasing lol,shame .
ive never had a lot of money to do much with my children as being a disabled single parent money never seems to go far and uniforms here in the u.k. A must .But I will say I've always done my best making sure they have all their needs met and a few wants along the way .
Having older children has meant that my younger children have been included in their summer holidays ,trips to a few theme parks and camping out in the rain .I'm extremely great full
that they have included my children totally in their families and their lives,without them my life would be far harder.
my 11 yr old is off to secondary on Tuesday for the first time and teaching him the art of doing a tie was laughable but a part of parenthood,I often wonder if they are missing anything by not having a father figure in their lives? Maybe they are ,but in the meantime I will do my best to keep those butterflies at bay and draw a few along the way .
