With military precision the Mathie household prepares for five-year-old triplets Reuben, Sam and Kara to start South Morningside Primary School on Monday.
Mum, Anne Mathie said supportive neighbours and friends and a weekly planner is the key to keeping it all together.
“I also start a new job on Monday,” Anne said. “It can be chaos and everything has to be completely organised but I know if there’s an issue I just need to shout.”
Anne said she is having to retrain the triplets’ older brothers, James, 15, Daniel, 12 and Ben, ten, not to leave things behind.
“Now I’ll be back at work I won’t be able to dash around with missing gym kits or forgotten lunches,” Anne laughed.
