Yes, I am a sporadic blogger...
albeit with good intentions on most days to actually complete a post however it seems that the hours escape me and before I know it another day is done and I've not managed an update!
today is a day that MUST be logged!!!
If you follow my insty feed (the_spangler - and yes your more than welcome to check it out, follow along and get a 'closer' peek into my little occupation of the world)
then last night you would have seen and read this:
"And so in what seems the blink of eye, tomorrow I will help her into her uniform and walk her through the gates, give her a kiss and squeeze her tight, tell her how much I love her and how proud I am of her, thank her again for giving me the most special and important gift that only she could give - making me a mother. Then I entrust to the school the educational care of my firstborn... Both she and I will be sharing this new experience in different ways..."
Yes, my eldest, Big Little Miss M has embarked on a new chapter of her life... school!
There were of course the obligatory happy snaps...
Little Little Miss M just adores her big sister and was so proud of our school girl! She jumped around all crazy and excited at just seeing big sis in her school uniform... though the poor petal was missing her dearly by 11:30am and we had a further four hours of asking to go pick her big sister up... every ten minutes or so!
Little Little is having a first of her own today...
S visited and met her kindergarten teachers and had orientation for her kindergarten program that will start next week. She is so thrilled about making new friends - all her friends (mostly) are friends of big sister as she has been her shadow for the past few years... constantly reminding her big sis that what's yours is mine, but what's mine is mine... toys, lollies, friends you name it, little sis will claim it!
My girls are growing up so so fast... it truly only seems like yesterday the hubs and I were driving home with a kind of surreal feeling, having been entrusted with the care of a tiny, dependant, almost foreign (but oh so loved and gorgeous) little bub!
Oh, where does the time go? Ever since I was a little girl myself I always wished that I had the power to stop time... like that character in the eighties tv show that would touch her fingers together and everything would stop... I still want that super power from time to time - just to freeze a moment and soak it up, adore and cherish it just a little more... like a photo but with more realness and in the moment!
Anyhoo... I'm just a proud parent today. My girls are growing into ever more beautiful creatures day by day - their affection and dependance on each other is everything I dreamed but never experienced having a sister would be like.
