They are the three little words most mums have heard before. Three little words mums either love to hear or cry at the thought of them. They make some mums jump for joy while others need to get out the tissues. This year could be the first time you hear them or it could be the last, but one thing is for sure; they are three little words all mums will experience and never forget…BACK. TO. SCHOOL.
With both our precious little first borns about to experience their first day of school this week (a bit of sniffling mixed with a yeeha!), we thought we would chat to some other Mornington Peninsula mums about how they feel when they hear the words; “back to school”, these were their responses;
Belinda from Frankston, two children, both in Primary School.
‘Back to School’ to me means a fresh start! Its getting back into routines and looking forward to what new adventure the school year brings.
Amanda from Philip Island, two children, one in Primary School.
To me it means my son is going to learn and experience a whole lot of new things again and gets to hang out and play with his friends!
Tara from Carrum Downs, two children, one about to start preps.
With my first born starting prep, back to school fills me with pride and lots of tears! Happy tears!
Danielle from Langwarrin, three children, her youngest about to start preps.
My preppie, will she miss me? Hopefully not, probably not. My son, he is ready for Grade 3 but is Grade 3 ready for him? And my eldest, she’s in Grade 6! When did that happen???
Bec from Langwarrin, two children, one already in Primary School, one starting prep.
Quiet house and me time. Back to routine but I’m going to miss my little shadows terribly!
Amelia from Mt Eliza, three boys, two in Primary School.
Early mornings, school lunches and routine, routine, routine. Shhhhhh heaven and hell all at the same time. Two kids down…one to go! (But what I really want to say is -Thank fuck, thank fuck, thank fuck school is back bitches!)
Jess from Rye, four children, one in Primary School.
I absolutely love the school holidays, so for me the words ‘back to school’, bring a little bit of sadness because I miss my babies so much when they’re gone.
Bec from Frankston South, three children, one starting prep this year.
Not sure if I am ready. I wish I couldkeep her home another year as I feel like I am losing my best friend but I know she’s more than ready to take school on.
And then there is me! Lisa from Langwarrin, two children, one starting prep this year.
For me, it’s mixed emotions, I’m excited for her because I know she will love school but I am going to miss her company, she’s growing up way to fast….
Thanks for sharing mama’s!
