B, you are a schoolboy now and I am now a school mom. Both of those sound so alien to me still out loud. It’s only been one full week of school and yet you are bouncing around with new sayings and new friends already. I love how much you have sprung alive just in a week of school. You also had a huge break through on riding your bike this week which we were so proud of you. It was like a light just went on and you did it and haven’t stopped. I am looking forward to so many changes in you this first year of school. What an adventure you are on now out of the house and out of my care during the week. It’s so hard to let go of that control and being the primary carer that I have been for four years and now you are just not there during the week. I was really emotional over it last week. I hope you long continue to love going to school like I did as a child. This marks the beginning of so much of your future. I am so proud of you for being brave and adapting to our new routine instantly with a smile.
MM, it’s just you and me now. We have been a trio for so long with your brother that we have never really had any one on one time together. I am so excited for our weekdays filled with new adventures and being able to give you my undivided attention. You are saying so much now I can have full conversations with you and you understand just about anything I say. I feel so guilty that you have lost your playmate during the day. I know I will have to fill some big shoes as you love your brother so much. It’s been a tough week for you learning that he is going to school every day. You have had a lot of emotional goodbyes not knowing how long we were dropping your brother off and then starting two mornings at nursery yourself. It’s been a lot of changes for you all in one week but I know you will soon adapt too and we will find our normal routine together. Your Darcy Duck continues to be a constant in your life while everything else is changing. I was looking over my instagram and realizing that she is in most of our photos, she is a part of the family. I will be devastated if we lose her or she falls apart because they have now stopping selling her everywhere. I think you have relied on her during all these changes and I am grateful she comforts you. Right along with your brother, you have learned how to ride a bike by yourself this week. I thought you were far too young but you hopped on your cousin’s bike and caught up with B like it was something you already knew how to do. It really took me and Daddy by surprise. We have been having bike races between you and your brother all weekend. I think you will long continue to surprise us, little girl.
