Hooray for school!
Loved the holidays, so glad they're over!

Loved the holidays. So glad they're over!

Here are 3 things I love about school starting again:

The return of bedtime Looking forward to that hour or two of peace in the evening when the kids have retired to their rooms.

Goodbye to guilt I won't miss that feeling of 'I should be at home', when my son spends another whole morning in front of the TV.

Mess containment With everyone out of the house most of the day, the layers of mess won't have time to build up and fossilise.

Here's some Parent24 back-to-school stuff to read:

Beat those back-to-school blues

Are you a teacher's nightmare?

Don't let school fees sink you

If you’re buying supplies this week, Parent24 bloggers Cams and Deblet have good advice.
