    I got excited the other day because I bought a laundry marker to label their clothes.

    Really? What become of my life?!

    My baby starts Prep (Qld) next Tuesday. I'm def feeling sadder than when DS1 started!! It was more excitement and proud; this is just sad!

    I'm actually not sure what to do on the first day; re settling them in. My DH usually has the morning off for first days of school; esp prep! But how do I do it, logistically? Who gets dropped off first? I'm thinking we'll go do DS1 first, then leave him then take DS2. But DS1 wld want to be there for his little brother, and I don't want DS1 to feel any less important!! Arghhhhhhh!!!
    Help!??! lol

    That's Mine have 25% off with the code SAVE25 if anyone needs name labels - I really like their 'stick ons' room for their full name and my mobile number underneath. They stick well and go through the dishwasher without peeling off.

    Thanks for the replies; I thought that was going to be the best doing oldest to youngest.
    I think I'll still feel bad that I have to leave DS1- he's starting Yr 3, but can be a little sensitive sometimes & you know that good ol' mothers guilt!! lol :/
    I also think it will be better for DS2 if DS1 isn't there; we were still getting random teary mornings at Kindy, so it could be a teary day (for all!!)

    Nomsie; did you manage to find any more red shirts?
    We've also got a red shirt school so I could always send a couple your way if you weren't able to find any

    Everyone in our house is super excited for DS1 to start school, he is 5 1/2 and really needs the stimulation. This is his last week at childcare and we think it will take some time for us to settle into a new routine. He has been wearing his school shoes in with pride!
    We don't have a book list which I was surprised at, I loved doing the stationery thing at school v
    DH & I both work full time with 1 day each per week at home, I have only occasionally felt the mothers guilt with childcare but school seems to be designed around a completely different set of priorities. By this i mean activities during the day, 3 student free days in the first term, finishing early 3 or 4 days aswell. I know this is a bit of a vent, I'm just a little nervous on making sure we do the best for everyone.
