    Ahh ok you will find a routine fast enough. And I think you will be grateful for the Wednesdays off during feb- the little ones get so exhausted early on in the year! They need that day in the middle to rest, relax and build up energy for the rest of the week!
    And then just when you get used to that routine, suddenly it's march and they're heading to school 5 days a week lol

    Thanks Nomsie, I think it's just so much change for everyone in the family DS2 will be at childcare without his big brother and 3rd (and final) bub will arrive end of March! Finishing up work for 7 months, birthday parties..... Lots of great things to look forward to and we'll get our groove on in no time I'm sure!!! Positive vibes ~~~~~

    Def this!
    Im fully prepared to give DS2 days off in the first term (they don't get 'given' any days here- it's 5 days, full time school hours). He was still having a random sleep at Kindy every now and then and I think my little ratbag will need some quiet days: as when big brother is home he doesn't stop lol

    MiloMel it will be sad not having them at the same day care, but at 5.5 he's probably raring to go, like you said.
    And how cute that he's proudly wearing his shoes; they're so cute, aren't they )

    My daughter starts kindy in February and I need to supply a small cushion for story time/nap time. Anyone got any suggestions of where to buy one. She still has naps on most days so it's important I send her off to kindy with a cushion as I'm sure she will nod off during story time.

    DS2 took a cot pillow to Kindy last year.
    That way you can buy pillows slips to wash.

    Great idea, I already have a cot pillow case so that will work out well. Thanks

    My DS is starting on February 3rd. Im both excited and nervous.

    Adding to the nerves is that I am just returning to work. Im not used to having to organise after school care.

    And im worried about toilet issues at school. He has a hemorroid that we are waiting to see a specialist about. I will mention it to the teachers but i know its not their responsibility.

    One question I do have is did people get their child to see a doctor or clinic to fill out the blue book? My friend said shes not worried about it. Its been a while since we did kindy. We are in NSW if it makes a difference.

    Good luck to everyone else. Im sure we will all be fine.

    Mr 5.5 is starting year one this year but he had full days a of pre primary last year so he's very ready and I know the drill so not worried about too much. I was surprised at the quantity of his book list though, a lot for year one. He knows his teacher too so that's nice.

    I didn't worry about the blue book, I've put that away in their special box for safe keeping. The nurse at school will check hearing, sight. They will visit the dentist and an Occupational Therapist will observe the children in class at some stage through the pre primary year and let you know of any concerns she may have.

    One more day to wait for us. Ds is excited and I'm feeling sad, but only in secret as I don't want him to worry.
