Reunited: Reception & Year One

After a long Summer together, with some really lovely times and some pretty unbearable pass-me-the-wine times, the day we had been waiting for finally came around – back to school!! And after twelve months of tears from Eva, I was really hoping, with Megan starting in reception, that Year One would be a very different experience for her.

We had prepared as best we could, the school uniforms were bought, the agonising decision over which shoes to buy had been made, and both girls were seemingly excited. And then Tuesday morning came around and from the moment that Eva came down the stairs I knew that we were going to have a repeat of last year. It actually breaks my heart that her first photo of Year One is this….

School drop off was hideous; she clung to me in hysterics, clawing at me like crazy, begging me not to leave her, and as I prised her little hand from mine I remembered just how hard it was to leave her behind when both of our hearts were breaking.

That afternoon, after the longest morning waiting (“Is it 1.30 yet?” on repeat!!) it was finally Megan’s turn. And she couldn’t wait!!!

For the last year she has watched enviously as Eva got dressed each morning into her grey pinafore and shirt, and every day she would ask me, “Will I have one like that when I’m four?”. So when she finally got to choose her pinafore from Debenhams, the look on her face was priceless. She literally could not have been happier.

On Tuesday night when I picked both girls up from school and Eva saw Megan for the first time in her uniform, she managed a little smile. “You should be happy now!” Megan told her, “We are twins again!!”.Β 

And in the same way that she always has, Megan knew exactly exactly what to say to make her big sister laugh again and after such an emotional day all round, it was so lovely to see.

Seeing them together in their new uniforms, I felt like the proudest Mummy in all the world. I know that every parent is biased but I can’t help but think that they really are exceptionally beautiful.

Even when they are doing this…

Starting school has been such a huge milestone for Meggy and yet she has well and truly taken it in her stride. And although our mornings haven’t quite gone to plan with Eva, and we have had countless tears at bedtime, it’s a huge comfort to me, and to them both, that they have each other.

    Omg your girls are so adorable and cute. Makes me remember my school days when I used to cry before going to school while my sister would cry if she is to stay at home.

    Ohh your girls are truly beautiful! Can it be coming from mum?❀️ The photos are just to funny and cute! They make me wonder a bit if we have done the right choice of having one child because seeing your girls together make my heart break a bit for my daughter!

    Aww poor Eva, my year one son was sobbing at school, it broke my heart to let him go. I had to phone up and they told me he was fine, while I worried at home all day. They look adorable!

  8. September 7, 2017 / 8:46 pm

    Aw how heart breaking for both of you, I do hope Eva does find some comfort in having Megan there. They are both utterly gorgeous x

      Thank you so much! Eva is very lucky to have Megan to comfort her, they are adorable together aren’t they? xx

  12. September 8, 2017 / 12:02 am

    The first pic recalled my son’s day1 at preschool , when he begged not to go and as I broke his heart. But all the later pics were so so happy and both the girls looked so damn cute, with full of innocence and naughtiness. May they both be happy always!

    Such happy photos of them when they are together. They are so cute. So sorry that Eva has struggled. I see it with other children when dropping my son off (he just started year one too), and it really gets to me. Jasper has managed so far, but I do know that year one is going to be very different to reception and it is a little worrying. He isn’t the best with changes.

    I hope with Megan’s help, Eva continues to shine. They seem like a fab team.

  16. September 8, 2017 / 9:11 am

    It must be tough knowing how much one of your daughters dislikes school compared to the other. Hopefully, she’ll settle in better this year x

    How rightfully proud you must be to have such cute and adorable daughters! It must have been such a relief when that first day ended up going really well, helped by the fact that both girls attend the same school. They look so gorgeous together – so naturally photogenic.

      Oh no. It’s just so hard isnt it? I hope things settle. Xx

  49. September 9, 2017 / 7:12 pm

    Bless her, poor Eva. It’s so heartbreaking having to take them and leave them there in tears. My son was the same way up until the last term of year one then the tears finally stopped. He was still grumpy but went in without too much fuss. By year three I wasn’t even allowed through the school gate, he just took himself in. He still says he hates school and I was dreading last Tuesday and heading in to hear 4 as there were tears again before bed but he actually went in quite upbeat and when he came out he said school was okay. That’s the first time ever he hasn’t declared it horrible so I’d call that a win. So as hard as it is, it does get better, I promise. Hopefully having her little partner in crime with her again will help her find her feet. They really are so adorable together x

I can remember my daughter’s first day and she was super keen to go, just like Megan, though she didn’t have a big sibling to catch up with. Now she is in year 6 and on her way to approaching secondary! I hope that having little Megan will help Eva immensely and that she can enjoy school so much more now. Beautiful girlies, I hope that bond remains forever. xx

    You’re right, they are exceptionally beautiful. And they do look like twins! Bless them. Oscar started reception last Monday and he absolutely hates it. I’d considered a home education for him, and decided against it in the end, but if he doesn’t get on any better over the next few weeks I think I may reconsider it. He usually takes to things straight away so I was really surprised to find he didn’t like school. That was the main reason I decided against home ed!!

    Those pictures are absolutely priceless!! I haven’t done this with my daughter yet, but you’ve definitely given me inspiration. Regarding your bias, I’ll go ahead and assure from a neutral position that they are the cutest ever!!

    That’s so cool that your girls are so close and loving to one another. And it’s great that the one was so excited just to be able to go.

    Your girls are just so adorable! It’s great that they have each other and I’m sure this will continue right into their adult hood. Siblings are the best. πŸ™‚

    such a touching post! And they are exceptionally beautiful girls! It is such a great bond they have, my girls are super close too, even at 13 and 10 they are still all over each other and giggling constantly, lets hope they continue to always be there for each other xx #mg

    Aw “We are twins again”!! How delightful! They really are such beautiful girls (you’re not biassed at all). Such a shame Eva is still struggling. Hopefully having her little ‘twin’ at school too will help her along. The bond between them looks so amazing. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry by the end of this post! #FabFridayPost

    Awww bless them, I remember starting school as a child was never fun for me I always clung to my mother until my brother started school and we were together I was fine then. Lovely uniforms and they are both gorgeous

    They are adorable together! I can imagine the first day of school was not fun for your older but very exciting for the younger one. She will definitely help your older one feel better in school. They do look like twins πŸ™‚

    It must be so hard to say goodbye in the mornings, I hope it’s got easier for you both over the last week or so? I have always been beyond grateful that my kids have gone into school without tears (except for the odd day, and gosh, those days are heartbreaking). Your girls are absolutely beautiful, no bias needed πŸ™‚

      Thank you Sara. Sadly Megan has decided that if Eva is going to cry each day, so is she!! I now have both of them screeching and crying…..pass me the wine! xx
