As my youngest Daughter sits playing with her baby brother, I wonder where the time went? It seems like five minutes ago I brought her home as a newborn after the most straight forward and only non induced labour of all three.
From the start she was an easy baby sleeping in 3 hour blocks from birth.
She just fitted in so perfectly to our family. It’s creeping up on me how much I will miss her, she is so helpful and kind yet with a very stubborn streak!
Now as we drop my eldest Daughter off at School I think soon I will be taking her and as my late Grandma said almost lose her forever of the innocence she now has. I wonder how she will cope five days a week? Will she make Friends? Be tired? Eat her School dinner, Listen? She does three days at Nursery which she really enjoys and has made some friends although she can be a little shy. She is my little helper ( she chooses too ) helps me unpack the shopping and even load the washing machine.
I am also all to aware having an older Daughter, that with starting School there are so so many parts of the adventure to look forward too, That I must embrace each stage, as no one can stop time, So if you are in this situation I’d say look forward rather than back as so much joy to come.
For for the next 6 months I will be enjoying as much time as I can with her doing the things she loves, Knowing the 08:50am drop off will come round all too soon for us both.
Do you have a School starter this year? How are you feeling? xx
