Whats The Story? Sleeping Schoolboy 23/9/13

My little man started primary school a few weeks ago, the day after he celebrated his 5th birthday.

He is still not too sure he likes it. I asked him what he thought about being at school and he answered:" The trouble is Mummy, it takes all day!"

And that's the thing - it does take all day and at the end of it he is exhausted.

So I have been doing my best to make sure he has his tea and bath before he crashes - not always easy when you have another 5 or 6 children to deal with too.

Afterschool clubs, playdates, curriculum meetings etc all get in the way of a routine, and on the day this photograph was taken I was not as organised as usual so while I went upstairs to fetch clean pyjamas he fell asleep, curled up on a comfy chair.

  1. Ah bless him! It's so hard for them at that age because it is a long day to get through when you're 5. I have 6 year old twins and they are nearly always grumpy when I pick them up from school, so I have to try and get them to bed at a reasonable time. My 8 year old son still struggles too.

  2. Ah poor thing. My 6 year old finds it a struggle at times too.

  3. They're so young to be occupied all day, bless him, gorgeous photo!

  4. Poor little man, it must be so tiring for him. He looks super comfy curled up like that and what a great photo - I love it. Love what he said about it taking all day, it's a bit rude really isn't it!? Lovely post, thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory

I'd love feedback- but keep it clean and kind.
