This is it! The end of the school summer term. The end of our academic year. And the end of an era for my little girl, and for me. No more preschool. In September, I will take both my daughters to primary school, and life will never be the same again. They are no longer babies. There will be no more pushchair, no more nappies, and I will only have to do one school run, five days per week. My routine will be different. I will be different.
We have reached our limit for now. My children and I are exhausted, as are many other families all over the UK and beyond. I never appreciated before just how tiring it is to do the school run every day, never mind being a teacher or a pupil. It was different when I was a child, of course. I don’t really remember it. But I have huge respect for our teachers, all of them, and the school staff. Well done for working in such a demanding and responsible environment, and for still putting up with the associated aggravations that come with the job. Have a great summer everyone. We all deserve it!
