Today lad started school. He scampered off to his teacher very happily so fingers crossed it's a smooth transition for him. Change has never bothered him and although he prefers to observe before trying out new things like big slides, swimming and games with children, he has always happily gone to new places: friends' houses, new countries, school and kindergarten. I felt very proud of him this morning, chatting to his mates in the class and informing his teacher of his weekend activities. He barely turned round to say goodbye to the husband and I until the last minute when he gave us both a big cuddle and a huge smile. It's a wonderful, sunny day and I'm so excited for him. I hope school is as happy a place as it was for me.
