Back to school & overwhelmed musings of a 7YO

It's been big smiles all round, then last night, she collapsed.
Thoroughly exhausted. A new school. A new routine.
The amount of change that my eldest girl at just seven is undertaking, finally hit her.
I understand. I feel slightly confused and overwhelmed too.
How much paperwork?!
We all have to settle into the new school year.
I explained that to her shiny tear stained face at bedtime.
Esme Grace. So good at explaining how she feels:
"But Mummy, how am I supposed to remember it all?"

Oh bless her! I have a very overwhelmed 6yo on my hands at the moment... Hope Esme settles into it all soon and is okay hon xx

Hi Renee, hope that she settled down. Esme is lots more settled this week - even if she did bag herself a detention...
