wow, so ronnie is nearly four. FOUR I SAY. which means he is a big boy, a big boy who is off to pre-school in just a little over three weeks time.
earlier in the week i had a moment when his school shoes arrived. today the moment was even bigger as we went to buy the rest of his uniform. his first school uniform. too cute for words. most of it is enormous, as age 4 clothes are huge on ronnie, (the shorts he is wearing today are age 1 1/2 – 2) he is a weeny chap. not so much in height but not an ounce of fat on him, just like his daddy, mr HPMcQ. he was fairly good in the school outfitters, a little overwhelmed by it all, as were we when we got our bill! they have aprons to eat their lunch so they don’t soil (god i love that word) their uniforms!
next step wash the lot and sew in all the name labels, joy. then the final test comes as in two weeks time i think we may have to get his hair cut shorter. i’m not happy about this. i have no idea why it is so important that boys hair needs to be above the collar. does it hinder their learning? i think not. girls hair doesn’t have to be, so why boys? so once everythng is ready, i will put his polo shirt on and see were it all hangs to, then there maybe sadness as the scissors go snip snip snip. i can’t bear it, hence why i’m putting it off to the last moment. it’s so unnecessary.
