Relief – Weds 2nd Sept 2015

By | September 2, 2015

Oh my, relief aplenty today, concerning the lovely D:

There she is, smiling outside school under her favourite tree.   It’s one we use as a “marker” on our school walk and, at this time of year, we have a conker watch too.  D loves to find shiny conkers and they’ll be placed in her bag, to be painted and admired at a later date.

That smile hides a lot of anxieties before we left for school.   You name it about the new term start, she was worried.  Her new backpack is a winner (phew) and she looked very grown up with it on her back.

Her classroom is very close to last term’s and, after a few huuuuge cuddles, she headed off with a smiling TA.

Fast forward to the end of the day and there was a happy D waiting for me.   She’d enjoyed her first day and her new teacher said she’d been very helpful (bless her).  That was a big relief, as well as the chance I got to have a quick chat about the whole injections fiasco and the repercussions of that – which are affecting D in various degrees.   

Relief too for me that I handed over the prescriptions for September and October to a different pharmacy.  Relief that they were being processed and that she’ll (hopefully) be okay going forwards.

And we do it all over again tomorrow with T’s first day back.  He’ll no longer be an overwhelmed year 7, but a more confident year 8.   Knowing where each subject area is, knowing where the coach drops off and picks up.   Knowing familiar faces and the routine.

A tired D tonight, some anxieties about her PE lesson tomorrow, she’s anticipating that secondary PE is harder than primary.  Once she’s in the hall, with the PE teachers who are familar with her anxieties about change and motor issues, she’ll be okay.   I know she will.

Relief all round Jx

So glad that D’s first day back went so well and that things seem to be getting sorted now with her prescriptions at the new pharmacy, Hope all goes well tomorrow for T’s first day back too and for D with her PE class.

Thanks, bullies aside, she’s enjoyed her time in secondary so far 🙂
