This time in two months Daisy will be a member of a Primary school. Wow! Where has the time gone? I felt really emotional recently, as I purchased all of Daisy’s school uniform and supplies, mostly because I’m nervous about her allergies and how it will go having dinners at school. I know that I could pack a lunch for Daisy, and she would be really excited, but also I want her to be the same as her peers and sit and eat dinner each day with everyone.
It is hard to believe that in under 2 months Daisy will be at big school, all being well with the virus of course! I’m really excited for Daisy, as I know she will thrive when learning to read and write more than she already has. I feel that Daisy loves to learn, and is always enjoying learning new things, so hopefully school will be an interesting part of life for her.
I feel a little nervous, mostly just for the allergies, and also because Daisy’s latest FPIES in-hospital food trial has been cancelled. I’ve looked into having it done privately, but at £1,200 – £1,500 I’m not sure if that isn’t just a bit too expensive really, and instead we will wait until 2021 when Daisy will be reviewed and invited back for her next trial. It’s so disappointing, but I understand that there have to be priority cases, and a child with an iGe allergy should get that slot over Daisy.
During the week I ordered all of Daisy’s school uniform. It feels like such a big step! I was really pleased to see that I had budgeted perfectly for it, and actually had a little bit of money leftover after purchasing all the supplies on our list. I’ve used Etsy for some personalised items, including a book bag, P.E bag and water bottles too. I’m hopeful that Daisy will like everything I chose, as she was at Nursery when I shopped online, and we’re going to have a practice run through of getting changed for P.E and dressing herself etc, to make sure she’s as ready as she can be!
