K* started school today. Year One. He wasn't worred or fussed by it. His best friend is in the same class so that helps a lot. He's not the kind of boy that worries or fusses anyway; he just gets on with it. He even got awarded a sticker by the teacher for stopping an exercise when he was supposed to stop and then waiting quietly. He thrives on rules and just complies with them - such an easy kid.
These milestones can pass uncelebrated when they happen so easily. We now make a effort to drink a toast at dinner to recognise any and all achievements anyone makes. The kids love these kind of rituals. In fact R* suggested we should become Jewish because she really likes the rituals they have.
