Today, rather late though it is, we have the Ace of Bows. And today, has been very much that kind of day. I’ve been voted onto the Board of Governors for my son’s school and today, I went through the induction course for being a School Governor. It’s a new chapter in my life. I never appreciated it when I was growing up. I never appreciated it when I was living at home and everyone but everyone not only knew me, through my parents, but by extension, anything I did was reported back to home before I could put the key in the front door.
Was I safe? Hell yes. But I never understood the why, not totally. Not until I too had children and I discovered just how much cotton wool we don’t have to wrap the kids up in.
But I try not use that much cotton wool. That said, if I can help make the life of my children at school better and help the school get the best start to my kids and the kids in the area, I’m up for it.
