On Day 2, he cried buckets but promptly stopped after I'd left. It is his 2nd week back and he's remembered that Mummy does come back for him after all, so he's stopped being so bothered about it. Today he actually said, "Goodbye Mummy!" when I left.
When I came to pick him up, he said goodbye to his teacher and then added a shy goodbye to a friend. Ah. Who's the new friend? The teacher pointed the child out to me.
It seems a beautiful blonde little girl with the most gorgeous blue eyes has bewitched my son. He even knew her name so I think their relationship must have moved to a new level, definitely past just playing next to each other in the sandbox. I think they must be at the sharing Lego blocks stage. Who knows... it may even develop into the feed-each-other-Rice Krispies stage.
Isn't school fun, Connor!
P/s To the mum who told me she's sent her little one to the same school, do say hi if you ever see us!
