She doesn't like weekends because there is no school and she was borderline depressed at the start of summer with the knowledge of more than 2 months without school.
That was quickly replaced by the sheer amount of fun she had.
The last week of summer holidays were absolutely awful.
She was completely unreasonable and intolerant.
She was getting angry and frustrated with everything and everyone.
She was so ready to hit the books.
Honestly, we all were.
At the end of the first week the household has fallen back into a decently happy mood and a routine is once again established, much to the benefit of us all.
I had some strange emotions as this week has progressed.
Initially I was full of anxiety about my baby going to grade one.
Then once she was settled in, by day 2, I had my first real taste of a day with only one...might I add still napping, child.
Things are a tad bit easier getting done with one.
I do find I miss her though.
But the adjustment for her has been horrible.
She feels abandoned and hates hearing she's not old enough yet to go to school.
I have had to adjust to a new routine with the times of school, naps, dinner and the general getting things done in some order for the day.
Today K eagerly stepped out and took her first bus to school, which is an odyssey I will share at another time.
The smile on her face was truly worth any troubles the bus company and school board are going to be.
I am so proud of our girl and how wonderful she is.
