How did this happen? She was just a little bundle a few months ago and now she 3 and going to nursery at school!
It’s been an emotional rollercoaster for me, she’s been loving it! Watching my little one go into this new school on her own, not being able to go in and find her peg with her, or make sure she’s set up for the day. I HATE YOU COVID-19!!! I shed a tear or two just watching her walk all by herself. She just looked soo small, and yet grown up in her uniform.
The biggest question I was asking myself though, was WHAT WILL I DO WITH THIS NEW FOUND FREEDOM?!
I decided to make use of the free time I have and work on my posts, so that I can relax in the evenings rather than work all day long. It worked amazingly and still does. Furthermore the few hours I have to myself are the perfect time for me to rejuvenate and do something for me. I dedicate 2 days a week to myself and the rest to housework or my blog. This way I am able to continue to feel me.
I do worry about the effects that Covid-19 will have on our little ones as they go to school. They can’t go in with their parents, they are forced to wash their hands constantly, and goodness knows what actually goes on behind closed doors. Isabelle constantly comes home happy and contented so I guess at least that is a good thing. But you still can’t help but wonder.
After School Activities
When Isabelle returns home from school we have gotten ourselves into a little routine. She comes back home and her lunch will be waiting for her. This isn’t always a lunch of sandwich style meals, but sometimes an evening meal instead. She returns home absolutely starving so it’s always best to feed her straight away for a happy afternoon of activities.
After we finish our lunch she will get changed out of her uniform and our activities for the day begin. This changes every day, sometimes its visiting family members (whilst we can) and sometimes its arts and crafts, and playing. It also tends to be a lot of baking, as when I get bored this is my go to.
Our days go by so quickly and she changes so much day to day. I want to cherish every moment and document everything we do together.
Do they ever slow down in their development? Why do they have to grow so quick? Where has my little baby gone?
One day her enthusiasm for school may change, and I will struggle to get her out of the house to go to school. At the minute she’s pushing me to leave the house (sometimes up to an hour early) as she loves it so much. I also love the fact that every day she has a new best friend. At least I know she’s not going to be like mummy, but instead surrounded by friends who absolutely adore her!
Much love to you all xx
