Next week will be half term (mini celebratory dance). This term has been our toughest yet. Maisy started reception in September and I have never seen a little person more in need of a holiday.
I mean you think you know tired when you have a newborn but I really feel for this little girl of mine she’s absolutely exhausted. Bed time is some nights an hour earlier than usual – mind you I’m not complaining my longer evenings are a god send when trying to keep on top of work but she really needs this week off just to relax and let her little brain have a break.
She has settled in so well over the last few weeks since she started big school, making lots of new friends and learning all sorts. However I may be a little controversial here when I say I think they are still just too young for this full time schooling. Sorry but I do everyday she wakes up asking how long until it’s the ‘day week off’ or weekend as we know it, she just needs some whined down time where she isn’t constantly being stimulated and can just be four years old and play dolls with her sisters.
I am all for teaching children and them growing in independence but the past couple of weeks every parent I have spoken to at the school has said the same – their children are just shattered every single day and are struggling to stay up past dinner time.
As Maisy is my first little one at school I am just hoping it’ll get a little easier on her and my happy little girl will be back in the evening’s and this over tiered, unreasonable, little grouchy stage will be a thing of the past. Well until she reaches her teens and then I am sure she’ll be back!
Roll on Friday!
