The children broke up from school for their summer holidays today.
It was quite a hectic school run. I’m not sure quite how I stayed sane! Thank goodness for my Mummy friends.
First I had to go and pick up the twins from their school. They were supposed to finish half an hour before Woo’s school so I should have had plenty of time to get from one school to the other.
The schools are not next to each other but about a ten minute walk (or 5 minutes in the car) away. I usually park the car a short distance from the twins’ school, pick them up and then drive round to a car park near Woo’s school to pick him up.
However, the twins came out of school nearly 10 minutes late. Then they wanted to say goodbye to their friends, then Lou decided that some people had been given a bouncy ball and she wanted one. When I told her there wasn’t enough time to get one because we had to get to the other school, she started to cry.
Her teacher saw this, and told her that she would pop back into the classroom and get her a ball. The trouble was that someone caught her teacher in conversation so we got held up even more.
Eventually we got away from the school. I feel as though I was a little abrupt with a couple of people along the way because I was panicking about getting to Woo’s school to meet him. I have drummed it into him that he must not leave the playground without me but it’s always in the back of my mind – what if…?
Fortunately one of my Mummy friends saved the day. I rang her on her mobile and she was already at Woo’s school. She also has children in both schools but had got there quicker than me.
So she managed to get Woo for me, much to my relief!
We eventually got to his school and met him. He was in a bad mood because someone had given him a chocolate, but when he went to unwrap it, it had melted. Apparently that was my fault!
I think my babies all need their summer holiday. They are all grumpy and hard to reason with at the moment!
Now I’m looking forward to having a relaxing few weeks, spending quality time with my babiesGoogle+
