I have so enjoyed being at home with my girls and my hubby for three weeks. Its been brilliant! We've done lots but we've mostly chilled at home swimming everyday - enjoying each other's company. KK goes back to school on Monday - new class, new teacher, new assistant so we are preparing for separation tantrums and lots of tears. She's going to hate me for a while and I'm going to be sobbing in the car again. I just know it.
Megan and I have a week on our own at home before she starts Grade One and I go back to work. I'm going to make the most of the week I have with her because its going to be a busy year ahead for her starting school, having homemwork every day, learning to read and write properly.
On the one hand I'm sad that she's grown up so quickly (gosh! wasn't it just yesterday that I was holding her tiny little hand in NICU for being prem?) On the other hand I can't wait to see my intelligent and sensitive little girl grow into confident Student. I can't wait to see her develop her own school interests whether it be something academic or something sporty - or both. She has so many options open to her and its going to be so interesting to see what she chooses to participate in and find out what subjects she enjoys most. Its such an exciting time for her and for Riaan and I as her parents.
