First day of school

In which I discovered that the size 3-4 trousers are still too long, but Nico insisted he would rather wear trousers with the cuffs rolled up than the dark leggings that also meet the school "dress code". Why do I forget that my children are short in the leg for their height?

A frantic online shop later, all the supermarkets start at 3-4, but M&S had some 2-3 school trousers, so they are on their way. (What this says about customer demographics and expected-age-of-first-uniform I leave as an exercise to the reader.)

Anyway, have two pictures (second behind the cut). And if you want to compare, here are the ones I shared of Charles 5 years ago.

If he carries that bag around nobody will be able to see which trousers he's wearing anyway!

Luckily it mostly only goes to and from school and hangs on a peg during the day.

Reports from the first day are enthusiastic :-)

He looks like he was planning to fly to school :)

Glad to hear he enjoyed it and long may the enthusiasm last!
