Wow! I just realized that I didn’t post on here the whole summer!
Sorry about that!
In a nutshell, there was sickness, playtime, a visit to the seaside, a week and a half at Grammie’s, shopping, a picnic, trips to the park, swimming, first tooth, first step…and a partridge in a pear tree.
Today, is the day before Little Bunny starts KINDERGARTEN! I’ve done my rite of passage doing battle with needle, thread, and name tapes (yes, people, I’ve sewed name tapes on every article of clothing, although I draw the line at socks) ….I’ve washed the various uniform components…personalized her lunch bag with a hand-painted design, looked and re-looked at the school supplies list…tried to commit the uniform rules to memory (white or grey undies only, no frills on ankle socks, hat must be worn whenever wearing blazer…) so…I’m ready.
NO I’M NOT!!
I am NOT ready for my darling little firstborn (yes, she’s still little…she’s only 4!) to go to ‘big school’. Full days, five days per week…full uniform, not just the relaxed nursery school version.
I’m not ready to say Goodbye and watch her go off in the sea of ‘big kids’. No, no, no!
So…of course, when she cried this morning and said ‘I’m crying about that I won’t see you again when I’m in school.” I told her how great school is and how much she loved it and that I’ll be right here waiting for her and I’ll be there to pick her up at the end of the day. I smiled and forced that ‘of course I’m happy’ tone…
Who knew being a mum would require a Master’s degree in acting?
See you tomorrow with pictures.
