And at my age I really shouldn't as time goes too quickly anyway.
I don't remember feeling quite so apprehensive when DD1 took the test, but I so want to be over and done with it all now and just know where we stand.
If DD2 gets into Pates with her sister we are seriously considering moving closer, so I guess that's why this feels more "important" this time round. Although even if she does get in we may not move as the house needs work before it can be sold.
With DD1 we hadn't even considered Pates until we got the letters and she decided after taking a look round that she felt at home there. DD2 wants to go there too, but understands and accepts that this might not happen (we are also looking at comps as a backup plan to grammar school, as she says Plan B
Sorry to waffle, just need people who may understand how I feel.
