First day at nursery

First (half) day of nursery for the two year old.

She loved it. Super cool when I asked her how it was "Oh, yeah, good, played with Gemma (keyworker), I'll go back. Let's go home." Then a belated massive hug for me.

She's asleep ridiculously early and was sad that she's not going every day. Yay for our independent little girlie. ❤️

Silver linings among grey clouds

Third night of night weaning and daughter slept through until 4am (only waking for a wee). Yay for potty training successes, yay for my efforts teaching her slowly to fall asleep on her own and yay for daddy's lack of boobies and night time patience. We make a good team. ❤️

There's always a solution

After the hardest day this year, I'm done with battling.

Too much fighting, so I've given them some patients to look after... So far, so good. ❤️

Rainbow cloud

If you're careful you can see the rainbow cloud in the wispy bits. As noticed by my son. Absolutely beautiful! ❤️

Third day

Boy says he's made two new friends who he has lunch with, loves his colourful and compartmented lunch tray, loves being able to choose his lunch for himself (distinct lack of fruit or veggies!), has been playing with his friends and generally seems happy. Said he likes being four and wouldn't be two again because he likes school. Yay for my brave and adaptable boy! I'm so, so proud of him! 😍 His sister however has been a massive struggle today, but she says there's too much change and she's tired. Here's to her settling soon. ❤️

So much change

Daughter decided she wanted her own bed tonight for the first time ever. "I big girl now." No idea if it'll last all night, but I'm not sure I can handle so much change all at once. Both kids asleep by 7pm. Clearly change tires them out too. ❤️

Strong girlie

Me: pretending to be daughter-eating monster in playground *roar*

Daughter: [grabbing me by cardigan tails, speaking firmly and without fear] No!! Come here monster, eat food, not SuperAmi! Or I put you in bin!

My strong girl! 😍❤️

Second day of school

Son ran in without looking back, first in. ❤️

2.5 year old perception

Daughter: wind is picking up my hair when I walk. Feels nice.

First day at school

I have taken the obligatory school photos and with not a single door or mantelpiece in sight! 😂 Major struggle getting two sets of smiles or sensible poses, but I think I got some lovely ones. My beautiful boy ready for school. I'm so massively proud of the person he is and I wish him so much luck in the independent journey he has just begun. ❤️
