My experience as a grade 1 mom is way way easier the second time around. Wow, what a difference. Party because you know your way around activities and how things fit together so you as a mom have more confidence and know how things work.
But party also because Mr C seem to be such an easy going grade 1.
Possibly because he is a second child - as one of A's friends' mom
pointed out the other day - the second child's path is paved by their
older sibling (s). They are more familiar with things, they have
possibly been to some places with their older siblings and they have in
our case a caring older sister at after care to ease things in. But he
also has such self confidence in all this.
The Princess is enjoying grade 3 - it is a big leap in terms of the
amount of home work they get but she is copping well. She got her first
merit yesterday - I think the soonest she ever got one.
L is settling in well, or so it seems on the surface. However he is
giving us all hell about eating(or not). Every meal is a fight - we are
I am frustrated and struggling with some extra mural activities and
fitting things together (or not) but hopefully by the end of the week
things will be sorted. Its mainly A's swimming - it almost seem that
swimming coaches are a fickle bunch and that each season we have another
issue with the couch at school. C had cashes but I was able to sort out
where what fits. He enjoyed his first Chess class yesterday and is very
excited about all that.
So here's to the full tempo of the school year.
