    DD can, but that's a specific love of hers. She's always asking me to write out sentences so she can copy them - I haven't pushed it or even really encouraged it as I don't want to teach her things a certain way then have her teacher do it differently and have her get confused (DD can be quite rigid and anxious about change). She is going to love the chance to do so much writing!

    Like a PP said, my tears will also be wistful ones She's my only baby, and whilst I'm so excited for her, I just can't believe my time of having a child at home is over. I'm SO not ready, haha!

    My DS can, but it's fairly messy. We're working on his fine motor skills with help from his OT.

    Both of my kids could write their names before they started prep. My daughter's grade one now and she doesn't write her name any better now than she did at the start of prep, haha.

    My little one loves numbers more so than letters. So he can write his name but that's about it. He knows the alphabet and can name "what letter comes after..." so it's not just the song.
    But he loves numbers. He can count to 100 by 1's and 10's. He can also go backwards. He is also starting to do basic math (e.g 4+5, 7-2). So he will be alright in maths I would think. But English he might fall behind, because as I mentioned his writing isn't too great but also, he's only been speaking for about a year and a half. Before 3.5 he couldn't speak at all. So his understanding of language in general isn't the best.

    DD can write her name but always sulks about having to write and cries that she can't do it - but still does it. Her letter c is usually half way between a c and an n.

    Her reading is pretty good and so is her basic addition and subtraction, but her fine motor isn't so great, so she can barely draw - still scribbles.

    How is everyone feeling?
    Nervous?
    Excited?
    I'm nervous that my son won't like school and will refuse to go. He's a real home body.

    I am feeling very anxious as I have had severe PND with dd and I am nervous it's going to trigger it. I've been in tears past few days over silly things (sounds silly!) I am sad that I feel I have missed a son much with her I know I have lots to go but it's hard to explain. She's very excited but also worried about ds.

    I'm excited as I love seeing my babies grow. I'm also a bit sad because my babies are growing. Haha.

    I'm also a bit nervy about how Mr5 will cope. He did okay on most of his translation days, only once did he had a full on meltdown but that was with a teacher who is no longer there. His teacher for this year, went to a few autism conferences and workshops and seems to be trying to get on top of all that. So I'm confident she will do her best. But I just worry how he will cope and if he will regress any.

    I'm really excited for DD, she loved all her transition sessions and she can't wait to start. I'm excited for the new era to start both for her and for me (I plan to start a sewing business from home once she starts ). It's an exciting time! Plus also she really deserves to be happy after going through cancer treatment.

    I think DD is nervous but as soon as she sees friends from preschool she will be ok I think.

    I'm excited.

    As for the writing she can write her name if she has it next to her. She does mix up the letters sometimes. She complains her name is too long (9 letters) lol.
