This is my huggable all ready for her first nursery visit!! And just incase you were wondering yep she's a genius!!
She suddenly seemed so grown up yet so small to me still as we set off. Such a big girl to be going to what she calls play school and wanting to be independent but then I think so small and still a baby really at two and a half for mummy to be leaving her to stay and play without her being able to shout for me to help her with the toilet or show me something she's excited about or encourage her to try that dinner.
My girl has the sweetest heart so tender and living and she has never been treated unkindly so I worry so much that once they go with other different children some if this may get knocked our of her and she will develop other tendencies. She shares so well and doesn't know what it's like to be not included so it breaks my heart imagining her little face falling if someone snatches from her or another child hits her or won't let her play!
But I also know that I cannot keep her in a bubble she needs to mix with peers and experience these things and know that it will be ok. Yes there will be tears ( mostly mine I fear!) and yes I will want to throttle anyone who hurts her but I also know that there will be giggles, achievements and new friends made.
So that's it two mornings a week my girl packs her bag and goes to play school and me? Well for now I try not to cry or be bored without my little sidekick and I count down the minutes till I get to go collect my smiling slightly disheveled girl!
