oh how they grow

This big girl of ours has had her own adventures this week- starting Preschool. Its only 2 days a week, but we do miss her terribly and its rather odd not knowing who she is with or how she is feeling.
Thankfully, it seems to be going very smoothly for someone who has never been in childcare, no tears or dramas…and for that I am very relieved!
When we arrived this morning she unpacked her bag, put all her belongings on the shelf and ran off to play. Maeve and I had to hunt her down for our goodbye hugs!
Maeve is going to miss her special companion. They have formed such a beautiful bond over the last 2 years.

The girls seem to be changing in leaps and bounds at the moment. Maeve has surprised us all by almost instantly toilet training, and giving up her dummy for sleeps. I must say I don’t miss that extra load of nappies to wash each day! I am enjoying the Maeve and Mummy time too, something we never really had much of.

I know how you feel. My boy is off to his first day of pre-school tomorrow and I am just a little sad. I am glad she has settled in well. Enjoy the time with Maeve because that too is fleeting.
