Doh...


...hmm,so I messed up this morning....
I have it on my calender that the girls start school tomorrow.At 8.30 we were all dressed and ready to leave the house for my mum & dad's (kids were going there while I was at work)Then my dad rang and asked if I was sure they went back tomorrow as there were lots of children going into the school gates - (they (luckily for me!) live almost opposite the school).I rang another school mum to check and yes, I had it totally wrong...OMG!! We somehow made it to the school only 5 mins later than normal! Admittedly lots of Holly's stuff like her juice bottles and lunchbag weren't named and neither of them took their PE kit , but at least they made it! I cannot believe it though!Geoff has walked the kids into school with me on the first day of term every year..until this one - he has tomorrow booked off work!I know it's not the end of the world but I kicking myself! So this evening I have finished off the sewing on of name labels and sorting the PE kit....
In a way it was a godsend as Em had her new braces fitted yesterday :( To say she was unhappy was an understatement and the first thing she shrieked when I told her she was due in school today was 'I can't go'.She now has two braces to re-align her jaw.Yesterday at the orthodontist they had to bring her back out again as she was so upset and panicked.Thankfully though, it seems to be settling down okay, I just don't think she was expecting it so be quite so bad this time.I think going into school has kept her mind off it too, which can only be a good thing.
I'll leave you with a photo taken after school minus the braces!

Oh no what a nightmare, I dread that happening! Atleast they got there okay, and the photo is adorable. I had to wear braces as a kid too, and I promise it is all worth it in the end.
