1. Wow he has done so much in his first month. It’s lovely to read that he is getting on so well and that he is enjoying it, especially going to the pub!!
    His sad face is so cute. Charles did exactly the same at his preschool Christmas concert and end of year concert. Funny boys xx

  2. Ah, well done Burton! You must be so proud, sounds like he’s doing brilliantly. Sounds like you know a lot more about what he gets up to than I do about Leo, I must do a post like this myself, it’s so funny trying to figure out whats going on and translate what’s happening as when he does tell me what he’s done it’s usually in Greek!

    Loved the post, and the photos – and the pub bit really made me smile 🙂

  3. He has had a busy month! I love his model, very cool! It’s amazing seeing the difference in their abilities after such a short time in school. Well done Burton! x

  4. Great to hear that hes doing so well, we alaso don’t get a lot from Joseph, but offer lots of praise when we do in the hope he will share more! Burton seam to be getting a lot more home work than Joseph has, all we have is a reading book that we can change when ready. He has always been very resistant to me teaching him things & won’t tell me what a letter is even when i know he knows it, i’m just hoping hes better in school. We have parents evening son so will find out!

    • thank you i am pleased he is enjoying school and doing well. I dont get that mich out of Burton, it is like squeezing blood out of a stone!! I am sure your Joseph is doing better at school than he lets on at home x

  5. Oh my God! The Boy has got his fingers in his mouth all the time at the moment, and it’s driving me bananas because he’s never done it either! Mum commented earlier that it was like teething again, but I think it’s a mild form of regression with the big change that he’s had starting school. This oral fixation is something that toddlers do as a form of comfort, and I think The Boy is doing it for that reason. It’s perfectly normal to regress slightly at this age btw, they’ll soon correct.

    He has accomplished so much in such a short time, and he’s doing so well that you must be incredibly proud of him. See? We were right to give them a childhood pre-school filled with emotional wellbeing prioritised and time with mummy. We had homework tonight, a worksheet. Far from ideal, but we’re getting there!

    Linked up and off to comment on the others.

    • i think the fingers in the mouth things is a comfort thing he does it at swimming lessons too. BUT i dont want him to develop it into a habit because then it could become a real nightmare!
      glad you have had some homework at last!!! Well the boy at least lol x

  6. Aaahh such a lovely post. sounds like Burton is doing really well. It’s amazing how quickly they get them reading and writing before you know it he will be doing spellings & times tables. We try to keep weekends just for family time too but poppy is crazy and wants to read, write and practise her spellings & maths hee hee x

  7. Aww sounds like he’s settled in so well and is very busy now. So many little bits of homework and project work. No wonder he’s needing a visit to the pub! 😉

  8. He has had a busy first month, he already looks so much older in his school uniform. I love that he told the teacher he wouldn’t be coming in because he was going to soft play, I bet she had a chuckle at that! It’s lovely that he is coming along so well, he must be enjoying it. I hope it carries on like that xx
