So I started visiting the private Pre-Schools around our area and was lucky to find one I felt was a perfect fit for her. They had a large Garden area and I could just picture her playing outdoors with the other children in her element. I remember the first day driving her there I was nervous about leaving her, she sneezed in the car and we had a major snot attack, LOL. I had to pull over to help her and pull myself together. But she was fine. Always the confident and social one. I don't know how I've been blessed with such a child and so different from myself. And her experience in Pre-School has helped her to grow and be even more confident and independant.
Now I find myself the parent of a child about to start Reception. How has the time gone so fast? I took her yesterday to the Open day at her new school. She played with the other children in the playground. She found a tub of animals and picked out all the Elephants to make a Elephant family. She wanted another child to play with her with the Elephants so she ventured over to a group of girls and I watched in the distance as she chatted to them and pointed back towards her Elephant family then started showing off her new shoes, a pair of Skechers Twinkle Toes her Dad bought for her last week. I stood in awe of her and the beautiful person she is becoming.
After the Open Day we went to her end of year Pre-School Party. I think the Bouncy Castle was the hit of the party. And it was something akin to a miracle that it did not rain for once this summer. They had a beautiful time outside all afternoon and she enjoyed her time with her friends.
And of course I made cupcakes to celebrate the day. Pirates and Princesses.
