So it is number twos first day at nursery and a day that I have been looking forward to and dreading in equal measures for weeks or even months. I was convinced that he was going to be broken hearted about the change but right now I find myself sitting in the nursery lobby whilst he plays somewhere inside and he hasn’t looked back even once!!
So how did we get to this total change around? God knows!! In the past few months every time I have even mentioned nursery in an effort to excite and engage him with the prospect he has simply said ‘No I am not going to nursery’ or had a big old cry saying ‘I want to stay at home’ and yet here we are – on the fast track to settling in.
I couldn’t be happier for him as I know he needs his own friends and he will have so much fun, but there is still that little bit of sadness that he is growing up and not my baby boy anymore. I guess it’s normal to feel a bit of loss as things more on, but I am sure I will get over it the first time I drop the big boys to school and leave the twins with their nanny. The question is what shall I do with time to myself????
