Interview with Dexter – Starting school tag

August 30, 2017

There are so many posts flying around at the moment about starting school and what to expect and I’ve been meaning to write something similar for weeks but now all of a sudden we’re at the end of August and my first born starts school next week! I’ve still not written that post, so instead, I’ve interviewed Dexter. I’ve asked him a few questions relating to school and just a few other about his likes and dislikes and then a couple of random ones at the end.
Dexter only turned 4 in June so will be one of the youngest in his year but he seems so excited to go to school. The last couple of mornings he’s asked me if he is going to school today and ‘how many more days is it?’.
We’ve bought all of his uniform and his shoes and he looks so cute it all. I wish someone would interview me and ask how I feel about it though. Maybe that’s another post.

To make this post a bit more fun, I’m tagging three other bloggers in it so that they can ask their school starters the same questions or even some other ones and discover how they are feeling. These posts are always great to look back on and I can’t wait to read their answers so I’m tagging Lucy, Sarah and Sian.
