She wrote, “Today was such a big day for us, little Paul went to summer camp!
“If you know us and follow our journey on the Mummy Diaries, you know that Paul didn’t go to kindergarten or kindergarten, so today was completely new to us.
“Mama took Rosie for a juice and a brownie. Bless her that she kept asking all day, “When’s Paul home?”
“He had such a fun day full of activities, he was a little unsure at first, but we finally got to it xxx (still can’t believe he’s going to school in September)
Butting heads: She clashed with partner Paul Knightley on the Mummy Diaries in 2018 after refusing to send their son to kindergarten or kindergarten
“It’s all so sad but cute.”
The star shared a photo of Big Paul and Little Paul in matching green t-shirts as they walked hand-in-hand to the summer camp.
In 2018, Sam and friend Paul had a burning argument over their then three-year-old little boy, Little Paul, who went to day care.
Sam carefully brought up the topic of nursery by speaking to Little Paul about interacting with a girl on the beach on vacation.
Sam said, “Paul is definitely ready for a playgroup, playing alone with Nelly and Arthur. Three is a perfect age to participate.

“I think it would be a lot of fun for him, a lot of people put their kids in the nursery, if he doesn’t like it, he doesn’t like it, but we have to try. There has to be some kind of routine. ‘
Irritated, Paul paused: “What everyone would agree with, kids just want to be inside their own environment, play with their own things. He has such a beautiful life, why does he want to go elsewhere? ‘
He continued, “I didn’t go to kindergarten,” and the reality star said, “Neither did I.”
A frustrated Sam then told him, “As parents, I want you to check out a few places with me,” Paul replies, “I’ll see them, but I’m forced to do something I don’t want to do.”

To which the frustrated TOWIE star returned, “We can’t afford to fall out about it, we have to stay strong together, whatever the outcome.”
After deciding it might be enough to get into the local playgroup once or twice, the pair would get even more backlash when they dined out with Sam’s sister Billie and her husband Greg Shepherd during the season finale of the series.
Billie argued that Little Paul, like her own children, would benefit from interacting with others, leaving the house and away from his parents to prepare him for the time to go to school.
But Father Paul insisted that he wanted his son “inside” and “at home with them,” and that sending Little Paul to the nursery would be like “chopping off his arm.”
Controlling? In 2018, father Paul insisted that he wanted his son ‘inside’ and ‘at home with them’, and that sending Little Paul to the nursery would be like ‘chopping off his arm’
Viewers were unimpressed with this, flocking to Twitter to beat the father of two for being ‘selfish’ and ‘a clown’.
In the tense scene between the two couples, Billie told her sister and Paul to do this [their son]and that Little Paul must “come out of his comfort zone.”
Billie said, “We sympathize [their eldest daughter] Nelly, she played with other kids, not just her mom and dad. I think it does them good.
“I couldn’t imagine sending Nelly to school without sending her to the daycare center.”
Choked? Paul then continued to claim that “being inside” was better for his child and insisted that Little Paul miss nothing. He added that he is the kind of father who ‘wants to be involved’
Paul still pressed his point and said, “We are lucky to work from home. Sending Paul away would be like chopping my arm off. ‘
Then he told how he cried when he was sent to school as a child and that he did not go to the day care center, which refuted his own point of view.

Billie: “They have to get used to being dropped off somewhere and know you’re coming back to pick them up. Otherwise it will be the biggest shock of his life! ‘
