I went and ordered DD and DS2s school uniforms for next year today, and yesterday picked up their class schedules, what on earth am I going to do with myself all day with my babies at school? it's too soon, they are too little I am going to miss my babies (and lets face it, no matter how old they get, to me they will always be my babies).
And just while I am here, I turned DD into a mini criminal today lol, I locked myself out of the house, managed to get the roller shutter up high enough for her to squeeze through, hunt around inside for the keys and then pass they out back to me lol.

I was just thinking the same thing!! I was kind of looking forward to it the first part of this year, but now I don't want them to go I've only just enrolled mine - talk about waiting for the last minute.
I think the silence is going to kill me I remember thinking when they were babies, that the year 2013 is just soooooo far away & it's nearly here.
I'll be on tuckshop

I hear you! My two start school next year as well. I am dreading them starting as I love them being at home with me.
This time has gone by all too quickly. Only 6 years at home and to think there are no more babies for me and DH makes me sad

Don't worry joshuakalan there are no more babies for us either, I wouldn't mind one more, and it was discussed at one stage, but the chances of twins again is too great so 3 is where we stop.

Besides uniform shop, schools are always grateful for parent helpers to do one on one reading with kids!
Enjoy the change, you'll find your busy with lots of things in your life in no time!

My girls are off to school too.
I've still got 2 left at home though, so should still be quite busy! Can't believe how quickly they are all growing up.

It seems like yesterday when we were all in our expecting multiples threads!!
No more babies at home for me either & I've been really in mourning over it - I wasn't expecting to feel like this. I cired myself to sleep last night. It's the end of an era I suppose.
