I have just attended the annual general meeting for Lachie's kindy for next year. This is where the new committee members are elected for 2009. I am really excited! My little man is going to kindy next year!! He will only start in term 2, as he turns 3 years old in April. He will be there twice a week for 2 hours each time. That's how it is here.
From April next year, he will have his own classroom, his own teachers, his own circle of friends, and his own school bag to pack! I think it will be a huge boost to his development and confidence.
This is my conversation with him today:
Me: Wow big guy, you're going to school next year! What do you think you'll be doing at school?
L: I pack my bags, and I go school...
Me: What else do you do at school?
L: I poo poo and wee wee in the toilet like a big boy...
Me: Oh really? What else?
L: I do painting, play with Miko (girl from next door who will be going to the same session), ...babbles on excitedly....
This was when I was tucking him into bed about an hour ago. Now it is 10.16pm. He is still babbling and singing away thinking of school next year!! What have I done??
