A-Z Of Summer - W Is For Wow Its Nearly Time For Kids To Go Back To School!
i thought i would deal with the holidays fine. I thought to myself that she was child number 4, so i had seen the milestones before on the other kids - would it really matter if i missed a few of hers? afterall as long as someone was there with her, it wouldnt matter who it was.
But these holidays both of us have found it hard to cope with, Tilly needed to be with her mummy and i had to work all through, even when i took 2 days holiday at the start of august i was sick with a bug! So i am now in the middle of 2 weeks holiday which gives me 2 weeks to fit 6 weeks of quality time in to. I am lucky that Tilly doesn't start school until a week after most of her friend so we have a sneaky extra week, which almost seems naughty!
For me the next week is a countdown to having to let go of my baby and letting her move on with her next part of her life. I know its going to be difficult for us both especially as i have made a huge mistake and booked to go away with work for a fragrance conference on her first day of big school - something i know i am going to regret! But i will be able to take her on day 2 and for the week after that, which gives us both settling in time. Something i am really dreading is being at home without her, it will seem so strange.
