first

“Rip off the bandaid, and run,” is the advise we give new Mums on the first day of school. When I dropped off my eldest child at school for the first time I ran so fast that I didn’t even say goodbye. I’m not sure Iole noticed, to be honest. But I felt terribly. Tomorrow she starts a new school; 700 children versus the 100 she is used to; hair in a sensible low pony tail versus the giant red bow she wore on her first day in kindergarten; braces, knee high socks and a tie. And just like that, she’s a middle schooler. Rip off the bandaid, and run, my girl.
