...rather than going to the after school club. She'll let herself in and I'll be home very shortly afterwards.
She needs to get used to being a latch key kid I guess, but why am I freaking out about letting her do it?!
On the plus side if I do cave and let her, she'll have a list of chores to do whilst it's quiet.

Well I felt the same last week when my E walked home from school. I was on edge until she was home and safe. Your E is a couple of years older and going into the comp in Sept isn't she?

Aww Sshh let her do it. She is a sensible kid and its good to test before sep

Yeah she's 11 and it's her last week of primary. She just seems so young and it makes me feel so old!
Sensible...hmm. This is the child who packed leg warmers for her trip to Chessington last week when it was 28 degrees.

But leg warmers are seen as funky by 11yo so I see her reasoning lol

True Belle, true.
She's got my keys and is walking home. I will be clock watching for the 20 mins it'll take her to get home and call me....eeek!

Does she have a mobile?
16/07/2013 at 10:36
Yes, she's got that with her and I told her if she's at all worried about anything to go straight back to the school and wait for me there.

Phew, she made it. Clever little girl I have there.
I will be setting up a secret webcam in the house I think, I bet she's not doing her homework or the hoovering like she promised me right now

Nope she's listening to MTV at full blast and on instagram ot Twitter!
16/07/2013 at 16:09
Haha, she's not discovered MTV yet, she doesn't really get Twitter (fortunately). It'll be Friends or some hideous American Disney crap - Hey Jessie or whatever it's called.

Glad it went well. Its hard knowing when to give them a bit of extra freedom.
