Well the time has come, I can't stop the clock, I can't turn back time, I must accept that life moves forward (sometimes at breakneck speed!). When little Sweetpea was born nearly 5 years ago I felt like I had all the time in the world with her.
I was lucky to be able to stay at home with her all week and find a job when Daddy was at home to look after the Sweetpeas. I was very lucky that she was a very easy going little toddler (we will forget the colicy days and later temper tantrums :-)), this was a blessing but then again not so as it has made it that much harder to let her go. Sometimes I feel I know her more than I know myself.
We have both had to say goodbye to the groups we attended together (we won't mention me gatecrashing them with no child in tow :-)).
She started Ception (Reception) class in school a few weeks back, firstly half days for two weeks - that wasn't too bad. She then went to full time last week .... oh how I miss her!
She is loving going to school and I know I am lucky to have had her at home for nearly 5 years. I know I will adapt to this change but it will take time ......
