Gosh I can't believe I have just written that title. My baby has started pre school! People ask me if I am sad. I'm not. Yes it is the end of an era, but I am tired. Tired of the endless games of Octonauts that I am not actually allowed to play. Tired of the tantrums at school drop off and pick up. Just tired, most of the time. Little man is only in 3 sessions a week to start with, but it is time away from me to be his own little person. At the moment he is clinging onto me as I leave wanting me to stay. I know it's an act. I know that 5 minutes later he is fine and painting or playing in the sandpit. It still pulls at my heart strings every time. Oh course the tears may well have just been down to the fact that I checked his pockets and found the packet of jelly sweets that he was planning on taking in.
So now is a time for looking forward. The baby phase is over. I have had my fair share of nappies and sleepless nights. I wont pine the days that were but instead look forward to the times that will be. The boys are getting more fun and able to do more things. Big man has a fantastic sense of humour and I love chatting to him when he stays up later at the weekend. Yes the baby phase is over but there is so much more exciting stuff to come. So I hope that the tears at drop off are short lived little man, as you are now learning to be you. If your brothers are anything to go by you will be great.
