Back to school

School went back on Wednesday for children in Western Australia 

This is my eighth 'first day of school' as a parent so we were pretty relaxed. 

We employed the usual tricks to help us get ready and out the door,
  • Lay out uniforms the night before
  • New socks, all labeled 
  • Lunches pre-prepared
  • Bags prepped the night before
  • All back to school supplies labeled & in one bag
  • Hair freshly washed 
  • Early to bed, lots of sleep 
  • Already found out which classrooms to go to. 
Foolproof, right? But Miss 7 managed to lose her uniform between laying it out before bed, and getting up to get dressed in the morning. 

It turns out she had moved it to the end of her bed when she went to sleep so it would be right there when she woke up. But she tends to kick off her blankets in the night so when she was tossing and turning she kicked her uniform down the side and end of her bed, lol. 


Thanks for dropping by. I'd love to hear your thoughts......
