The BIG DAY has come and gone. A day our (not so) little girl was looking forward to so much and a day that I was dreading if I am brutally honest. Quite often I would wonder where the time has gone. How is it that it feels like only yesterday I was giving birth to our gorgeous girl, when in fact it is already more than 4 years ago? Of course, I am so happy that her little bubbly personality now really shines through and she is ready to embark on this totally new adventure – big school! The day itself was actually a lot better than I anticipated. The dreadful weather was probably one of the main factors for this. My husband was able to take the day off work so that we could take our daughter to school together. It was literally raining cats and dogs – I kid you not, I was soaked through to my underwear by the time we got back home. As soon as we arrived at the school gates, the teachers whisked the children off into their allocated classrooms and we barely had the chance to say our goodbyes. Which in actual fact was brilliant as it didn’t leave any time for tears. And the tears would have flown – definitely on my pregnant hormonal part (I would have had a pretty good excuse though I think :-)).
And here we are – one week of school is pretty much over and done with and we are settling into a routine. Our daughter loves big school, has already made new friends, is always happy when she comes out of her classroom at the end of the day and is super excited to go again the following day. She would go to nursery 3 times a week and the other 2 weekdays we would have together. Yes, I miss our “mummy/daughter days”, but I couldn’t be any prouder of our gorgeous girl!!
