Well already I'm a bubbling wreck! Bang goes my tough mum act! As some of you know, Willow has bowel issues due to a condition she was born with and she has been assigned a SFL (support for learners) assistant to help her with toileting and when she needs cleaned up or changed . So because it's quite an intimate thing, Willow and Jenny have a pretty good bond and have done for the last 2 years. Unfortunately, due to staffing issues, Jenny is moving to another school. And when she came over this morning to say goodbye to me and tell me how much she's going to miss Willow, and what a credit all my kids are to me - well I burst into tears. But I wished her luck in her new job and thanked her for all her help and care of Willow.
The kids are home from school now, I think it was pretty emotional, it was Scott's last day of Primary school ever, Willow adores Jenny and her teacher, and Faithy just comes out in sympathy with the other two. She has the same teacher again next year so she's not too bothered about breaking up for the holidays, Willow is devastated - she loves school and she's made me promise to give her school work to do over the holidays, although I have a feeling that won't actually happen lol.
So to celebrate the last day of school, here's a sample I made for the Papeterie, featuring "winking student" from the Simply Sassy range.
