All the schools in our town have started back except D3`s school, which is taking three of the six local Council allowed teacher training days this week, and so our school will not start back till Monday September 6th.
It was so strange going past one school today and seeing the yard full of youngsters in their uniform when I was on my way to the shops to buy uniform for D3. It was quite surreal.
The uniform shop was pretty successful, though my stress levels were sky high. For some reason, D4 was in manic mode, trying to claw my eyes out when I picked her up in a shop because she refused to come out when I asked her to. She then proceeded to scream for a large part of the journey down the High Street, which was mega-embarrassing, as all the crowds turned to look at this evil monster of a mother who was obviously maltreating a poor child judging by the screams and yells.
By the time I got home , I was exhausted.
I will *almost* be glad when she is old enough to start school (Sept 2005) and someone else can deal with the tantrums...except of course, she will likely be as good as gold in school and save the tantrums when she is home with Mum.
I am ready to collapse into bed :-0
Asking your prayers,
