Both kids are now at school*. Only one day a week until Deb starts her new job. Then it will probably be 3 days school and 2 days with with the out in-laws
As much as Josh hated school when he started, Isi loves it! And I mean LOVES! She stood waiting at the front door with her backpack on from 7.30am this morning until we left at 8.15am. She kept saying “Isi cool (that’s what she calls it), Joshwa cool”
We loaded them in the car and drove the 2km to the school. When we parked, she started again. “Isi cool, Joshwa cool”. Being the loving father that I am, I told her that only her brother was going to school today, not her.
Well, if she could’ve got out of her safety harness, I reckon she would have head-butted me! She turned into Evil Isi in a split second! I quickly backed off!
She took off down the path to the front door leaving us for dust. When she got to her classroom, she dumped her bag and headed straight for the crayons.
Josh on the other hand still gets the sad, puppy dog eyes when you walk out the door leaving him behind. I did however hear him remark to the teacher that he had to go check up on his little sister later in the day as I left the room. “Just through the gate” though…
* school = play school/childcare/ daycare or whatever other name you have for it
