Lexie Fairy Cakes Blossum Possum Sweet Chops Mulvany.
I miss you, my swirly girly.
I hope you are having a lovely time at kindy.
You have been waiting so long for it to be YOUR turn at kindy.
They have watched you, those lovely teachers, come in with your siblings, every day now for three years. As a tiny baby, as a toddler, you became familiar, and now it is finally your turn.
And this morning when I dropped you off, of course you knew exactly where to put your bag. You knew where the toilets were. You know all the teachers by name. You are totally and utterly at home.
You sat down straight away at the craft table and didn't even look back at me.
When I bent down for a quick kiss, you told me "Mumma, you need to GO now. Leave me here by myself please."
And so it has started.
As quickly as these babies came rushing into my world, dare I say, crowding my world, with chaos, they are now moving out of it. To do their own thing.
Olivia is at school and so is Charlie soon. Lexie is now at kindy. All three of them, away from me.
There is no need for me, anymore, to breastfeed or swaddle anyone. No need to help them eat, or walk, or dress. All three totally toilet trained. The safety gates and childproof locks are gone. Self sufficient.
No rush to watch Playschool at 9.30am.
No constant demands upon me & my time.
I am glad, I am sad. I am glad. Sad, glad, sad.
I do not know much this morning, aside from I miss them.
But today, I especially miss my little Lexie.
I can't wait till 3 o'clock to pick my cheeky little tacker up...........
