Dear Seasoned Mummies…I need your help.
In 6 short sleeps my baby girl starts school.
I’ve got so many emotions and thoughts rattling around my exhausted body that I can’t begin to make head nor tail of them.
I am still not sure how the time has flown so fast. Where does it go???
On the one hand I know she is ready (and I know I am ready!)
On the other hand, I am not sure I am ready for 5 days week. In fact, I am completely freaking out about it.
Surely she is still only two and a half. Surely?!?
I can’t allow my brain to go where it wants to go – have I done enough for her? been enough for her? given her enough of me? I know I haven’t been perfect, but I’ve done my best and I love her to pieces. I hope and pray that it’s been enough.
I look at this baby face and I know that it’s too late to go back, nothing can be re-done…all we have is now.
And now, she’s my big girl. and a gorgeous one at that.
She has grown up so much these holidays that it takes my breath away.
I am really going to miss her.
5 days a week seems like a LOT at the moment, though I would happily go for 2-3 days (as I think would she).
So please Mummies, I need your help.
I’m looking for suggestions about different family traditions you have yourself or know of for both the start of school generally and starting school for the first time.
I would like to start next week with something special, something we can build on – another brick in the foundation of our family life – and I love some suggestions on what that could be!
thanks in advance,
love from a very tired mummy.
