The end of an era

July 28th, 2010 · 4 Comments · education, nursery, oliver, play, report, school

Today was Oliver’s last day of nursery. His pre-school days are effectively over. I felt rather sad last night when I realised. I considered taking him there for the last time this morning, as I mentally counted the pitifully few times I had had the pleasure of escorting him. Once I walked with him as […]

New nursery – Day 2

September 16th, 2009 · 10 Comments · nursery, oliver

I took the little man to his second day at his new nursery today. As the time approached for me to take him, we discovered we didn’t have enough car seats for me to take him to nursery and for Hayley to do her school runs. So I took him on his bike. It’s not […]

First day at new nursery

September 15th, 2009 · No Comments · nursery, oliver

Oliver ready to head off to nursery (once he puts his drink down). Today Oliver started at his new nursery. We decided to change after a year at his previous nursery for a couple of reasons. Firstly it would give him a new environment and he wouldn’t have to repeat the year he’s just finished […]

Best intentions and best laid plans

January 9th, 2009 · No Comments · nursery, oliver

After the Christmas break, Oliver has for the first time been a bit upset at going to his nursery. It’s happened the last couple of days. His teacher tells us he always settles within 5 minutes. Last night, knowing he might not be keen to go, I said to him that if he went to […]

Next year’s nursery?

January 6th, 2009 · No Comments · nursery, oliver

We visited another local nursery today with a view to possibly moving Oliver there starting next September. There’s nothing at all wrong with where he is, but as his birthday is in September, he started nursery almost exactly on his 3rd birthday, so he will have another whole year in nursery before school. So we […]

Sixty to nought to sixty

Today I collected Oliver from nursery on my bike. It’s the second week running I’ve done this on Friday (for reasons that will become apparent sometime soon) and on both occasions I’ve been lucky to have glorious sunshine. On both occasions also we went direct to the playground in our local park for some fun […]

Come as you are

This morning Oliver got up and decided that he wanted to dress up in Mummy’s “Tiger” shirt which lives in his dressing up box. Once I had put it on him he announced that he wasn’t Oliver he was Tiger. He then insisted on keeping it on, over his regular shirt, even when he went […]

First day at Nursery

September 11th, 2008 · 2 Comments · first, nursery, oliver

Oliver started at his new Nursery today. He was a happy chappy as he headed off for the 1 hour introductory session. He has been to a playgroup there regularly in the past so the venue was nothing new. He a bit surprised to be going upstairs as he has never been up there before. […]

New beats, Nu Nus and Nannies

March 10th, 2005 · No Comments · nursery

Another day, another mindblowing moment. This time it was at Hayley’s 16-week appointment with the midwife when she unexpectedly placed an amplified stethoscope on Hayley’s tummy and we heard the baby’s heartbeat for the first time. There can be few things more symbolic of life itself than a heart-beat. The very sound of it was […]
