Well hello there! *Sheepish wave* It’s been a while, hasn’t it? It seems I have taken an unintended, rather extended break from the old blog. Like I said, certainly wasn’t a planned event. However, I am still here and feeling like I just can’t let the blog go. I thought about it, but it just didn’t sit right, so I thought I would just start writing again when it felt good.
It’s been a busy first half of the year for us – Ms 5 is in kinder and Mr 3 is in three year old kinder. They attend a small kinder, which is lovely, but also means that the sessions do not run concurrently. So a couple of days a week I am up and back, up and back, up and back! Some days we have a little half hour break in between their sessions, which the kids love, because they get to run around the kinder yard with their friends a bit longer.
With Ms 5 in kinder, it’s meant we have had to choose a primary school! Oh, all the feels! It’s not like we were making a choice between private and public, but we did have a couple of options in our area. We’ve gone with the closest one, right near her kinder, which has thrilled Ms 5 no end of course, because that is where nearly everyone else from kinder is going. It’s such a mix of emotions, isn’t it, choosing a school for the first time. She is not ‘small’ anymore, not a baby, not a toddler, nearly not a preschooler anymore. Oh! How did that happen so fast. She is hurtling toward being a big girl, she is sooooooo desperate to be a big girl! And I am just trying to hold on as she speeds by, desperate to have her not grow up too quick, to stay with me just a little longer. Then she told me this morning, after discussing how grown ups live with friends or by themselves, that she won’t because “mummy I will stay with you and dad. Because I don’t want to leave you.” Heart. Melts.
So, I am still here. I plan on writing a lot more, in between kinder runs and school planning and dealing with the fact that my first born little daughter is rapidly growing up!!
Tell me – what have you been doing this first half of the year? Anyone else approaching school for their kids for the first time? Tell me how you’re going with it!!
