Try not to be nervous

Be yourself

Ask her for her id when she arrives at the door

Lock the door behind her and put the key in a safe place

Then just go with the flow

Lots of smiles etc etc

Heaps and heaps of good luck

Well if you do not want to disturb your son and you know what he is like when he is asleep - maybe you could peek and check on him every so often - she is very unlikely to follow you

Thats what I would do anyway

Do not worry you will be fine

Good luck Delly!
I am sure it will go really well. Mine did a few fridays ago.

I was really nervous at first, but there was no need to be.

The amount of members on here that tell you not to be nervous are all correct.

I think if your son is asleep check on him, as it gives a good impression to Ofsted a they will check how you are with your own children.

If he wakes up, try not to worry. I bet the inspector will make a big fuss of him. Mine did with my 2.

They understand that you have to still be a mum while they are there.

Good luck. XX

Good luck! :D

Bets of luck

Try and relax and I am sure that you will be prepared so just try to enjoy it. I must be kind of wierd but I quite liked mine, it made me feel proud of what I had done so far and although it was a big releif when it was over it was not as painful as I thought it would be

Thinking of you!
