Back to school with Cath Kidston. And ALL the emotions

back to school

Back to school is an emotional time. Understatement of the year alert!
I’ve been doing it for eight years now and I still feel that crushing weight on my chest as I send my kids off for another year, not knowing what it holds, what friendships they will make, what life lessons they will learn, what hardships they will face.
Of COURSE it’s emotional. But they never tell you just how emotional it can be. Just seeing your four year old wearing a uniform for the first time can floor you.

When they first go to school you worry they’re too little, too innocent, that no one knows them like you do.
Then they move into Year 8 and you worry that they’re too distracted by social media, or sport or friendship worries.
The point is you never stop worrying. BUT that heart-soaring moment you get when they put on their new uniform, sling their rucksack over their shoulder and run off into the playground without even turning to glance at you is worth it. Every single time.

I’m writing this post in collaboration with Cath Kidston who have made THE most gorgeous back to school video. And what makes it even better is it features three fabulous parenting bloggers and their kids.
The video perfectly captures those Back to School mornings and is utterly beautiful.
Well done to Housewife Confidential, Mummy Daddy Me and Kat Got the Cream for being part of something so lovely.

  1. Thanks Tara and isn’t the video lovely? I can’t believe that my four year old is going to school in September. It feels far too grown up, I can’t believe we are already at this stage. x

    Such a gorgeous video! Brought a tear to my eye, especially seeing Katie’s little girl in there whom I have followed since she was just a baby.
