Attempting to live a better story ... and scrapbooking it.
Good job, then Mum!
You've brought him up well then :) xx
Yes- he's doing really well- nice and confident!
Sometimes it hurts but you should be proud too.
I've always found that saying goodbye is harder for the parent than the child! It must be lovely to know that he is happy to go off so easily.
Sweet photo. They go through this stage where parents are nothing but embarrasing, don't they ? x
A lovely photo. It will be something to look at when he gets older.
I bet he still needs his mum for cuddles after school though. It's only through your love and support that he can enjoy his freedom.
..and isn't that a bittersweet moment...that's what we need to be able to let our children do!Alison xx
You've clearly given his such confidence in his ability to manage without you - believe me, this will stand him in great stead ...
He knows you'll be there at the end of the day so it doesn't worry him at all to be in school. xxx
Yes, I remember that happening with my lad too... It's kind of happy and sad at the same time, isn't it? I also remember the morning of the new school year, when we were half way to school. Before we turned the corner to the school road, DS turned to me and said, "You can go home now if you want...". "Don't mums walk to school with the children in your year-group?" "Umm.. nooo..." So, he walked to and from school by himself after that (he was 9) and I went home. I felt better after a bit of a cry and a cup of tea... And it was nice to be able to have the odd "lazy morning" and not get dressed until he'd gone to school (there are some bonuses to our children's growing independance)!
