Nursery & growing up..


A started nursery for the first time this week, It's left me feeling quite odd, I can't quite place how I feel about it.. I didn't cry, but I sure did feel like it.

I'm happy he's really enjoying it, and goes in without a worry, A goes 3x a week, mornings until after lunch, The manager has said he's a joy & just gets on with it, she's described him as "sensible", I've not quite thought of him that way before..but I suppose if you met him in person, you're likely to agree.

He always has something to say about nursery, what he ate, what he played with, I have really enjoyed hearing all about his days.

The first day left me feeling lost, out of place, like half of my body, my being was simply missing, a dramatic thing to say to some, but I honestly felt that way. When he was home, I found myself clinging to him, like some insecure child, needing a hug from him or to simply hear the words "I love you" from him. The second day was easier, & the third about the same.

The home visit went really well, I'm not sure why I was so nervous about it, she commented on how lovely our home is etc., it's always nice to hear, & was impressed with A's play corner in the living room, saying it looks like a mini nursery.

The manager even suggested upping his hours in January (2016), & I'm inclined to agree, he's needed nursery for a while, & whilst I was struggling with the idea, he has obviously needed it for a while. I'm pleased I waited until he was potty trained though, I'd say we're nearly there with #2's & also him being able to voice what he wants, has generally given me the piece of mind I needed.


I won a pack of Ella's Kitchen Rrrocketing Raspberry & Mango fruity bars not too long ago, & A is loving them! safe to say they're now on our shopping list permanently!. 


They look great too!I haven't had chance to taste one, because A keeps telling me off! haha.

Thinking of doing a "what the postman brought" posts, where I talk about what we got in the post, (this wont include children's clothing, this will be in the children's fashion haul page)
