So back to school for my two babies today. This is their second term of pre-school and they both seemed quite happy to be dropped off there this morning, probably delighted to be doing something interesting for the first time in 6 weeks. I lie a little, they have done a lot of interesting things in the last 6 weeks – animal parks, boat trips, adventurous family days out and of course attending their mom and dads wedding.
Today we also started the ‘big school’ applications for Keira, next year will be Rocco’s turn. Time is flying by and although I call them my babies, they are not really little babies any more.
Keira is two and 8 months and a typical little girl, who likes to play dress up and have her hair done. Rocco on the other hand, even at 20 months much prefers getting muddy from head to toe whilst obsessing over ‘big trucks’. They both love to sing all the nursery rhymes together and recite verses from other random songs too. The house is definitely quieter without all the singing, shouting, tears, tantrums and bikes riding up and down the driveway, but I miss the chaos in some small way.
So back to work, routine and structure in 2013…for a moment.
