“If you know us and follow our journey on the Mummy Diaries you’ll know Paul hasn’t been to nursery or pre-school, so today was totally new for us.

“Mummy took Rosie for a juice and brownie. Bless her she kept asking all day ‘when’s Paul home?’

“He had such a fun day packed with activities. he was a little unsure at first but we got there in the end xxx (still can’t believe he starts school in September)

“ps the lunch bag. it’s all so sad but cute.”

Sam shared more pictures of Paul on her Instagram stories, as well as her and her daughter Rosie’s sweet outing to a local cafe as they waited for Paul to come home from camp.

Sam wrote: “My very brave little boy… as a lot of you know who follow our journey, Paul has never been to pre-school or nursery

“Yesterday was Paul’s first time at summer camp so it was a pretty big day for all of us.

“We’re those parents but I know he’s so ready, and this is a great little stepping stone before school in September.”

She continued: “He was a little unsure at first, he was holding on to daddy for a little bit longer than the others, but he didn’t cry.

“I’m so proud of you my darling. The teachers were so kind and off he went…”

As she previously took part in a Q&A session on her Instagram stories, a follower asked Sam: “Is Paul starting school this September?”

To which Sam, who is also mum to daughter Rosie, answered: "Yes! Paul has never been to nursery or play group.

"We decided to keep him home with us (4 tiny precious years before they go off for so long) But we know he is so ready for school soon. We talk about it all the time with him."
