I totally didn’t forget this one….WINNING!!
A week or so ago I shared my story about the day I forgot Mr 5’s very first day of preschool. Yep, I actually forgot. Horrified at the time, but now we just wet our pants laughing about it. I was determined not to make the same mistake twice (ha although I came very close to forgetting) and today I was totally the mum who had her shit together and I remembered. We were even early. Like super early. I MAY have been just a bit keen to get her there… just a smidgen maybe.
Miss 3 was cool, calm, walked in like she owned the place. Knew where everything went, waltzed outside to put her lunch in the fridge, asked for sunscreen then sat down to paint.
Ah, um, ok?? How about a hug and kiss for your mum? Where was that?
I was telling a girlfriend this morning that I didn’t know whether to expect tears or not, but when tears didn’t happen, I am suddenly thinking “hello, where are the tears to show me that you might just kinda miss me a bit today?”. But nope, she just waved me off half heartedly as she was too engrossed in her painting. I think deep down I knew tears weren’t going to happen, she was already familiar with the preschool and the teachers from Mr 5 being there. And she was so excited to be going. But still, a little resistance to show I am still needed could have been nice.
Here are a few snaps I took. There aren’t many, you know… being the 2nd child and all…
