Its when I see littlies being pushed around in prams, or a tiny newborn being carried in a Baby Bjorn I get all emotional. I miss my girls being that age.
|I hope so!|
I sometimes wonder where the last 4 years have gone. What happened to my sweet bubba girl. She's such a cheeky, loud, funny, loving little preschooler. She loves going to preschool, and playing with her friends. She doesn't seem to miss me all that much which makes it a little harder for me leaving her, unlike Popette who was very clingy when I'd drop her off to daycare and cry when I left her.

Cherub is very excited about the idea of going to big school next year. She tells me that when she goes to "Big school", that she will make me a painting. She doesn't realise that Kindy isn't the same as preschool. Popette tells her that she'll be learning sight words, Jolly Phonics, home readers, and have reading groups.
Each time we drop off Popette, Cherub looks at the Kindy classrooms asking me which one she will be in. My response is a "Its too early to know". Of course she forgets this conversation the next time we walk past the classrooms, and asks me that exact same question again!
I guess I am feeling a little upset as my time as a Stay-at-home Mum is coming to an end. I have loved being able to be at home with my girls, and watch them grow up. I feel very lucky to have spent this time with them, as I know so many other Mums & Dads haven't had that opportunity.
On another note, I have been searching for part-time work or freelance work that I can do from home so I have the flexibility to take the girls to school, be their for reading groups and school events/assemblies. It is so hard to find something legitimate, and not a "Get rich quick" scheme. Has anyone got any ideas of jobs that can be done from home with minimal experience?
