I don’t know why but I’ve had a hard time writing posts this week. I know, I know, you’re all like, ‘Hey lady you’re late!’ The thing is, it’s not that I have nothing to say, it’s I have a thousand things to say and I don’t know where to draw the lines. There is SO much I want to tell you!!
We have almost sorted out our school situations which means I will not spend 2 hours a day sorting schools and classes and I will not spend 2 hours a day comforting smalls. Thus you and I will be spending a lot of time together!
We adore the English class, Jack is excelling and smiling while he does it. Middle child however had a rough go last week. I didn’t really notice, but now looking back I see it, after his accident he changed. He was always a reserved little guy until he was comfortable. He spent the first 4 months of nursery school without saying one single word. But he was happy. Here he was not. We are so fortunate to have a wonderful school here and we’re able to move him into a smaller, more reserved class. He is so happy, he even spoke to a child. And best of all he’s started laughing again. Benjamin has the most beautiful, contagious giggle you ever did hear. I remember thinking I would never hear it again. My mama happy factor was pretty high about this!
And then there was one… two of three little gingers are now smiling and happy, if only the little one would stop crying and having to be dragged away in the morning. Sigh… One morning, before we sorted this all out, I had a particularly tough drop off, the kind that leaves you crying at Starbucks. I know I’m not alone in this as I saw another mama, just this morning, with a super-tearful small human crying in the ‘kiddie cage.’ She had the dark sunglasses and little tears slipping, she’s me, just a couple days later. I wanted to tell her it was okay. I know she knows in her heart it will be but I bet a hug would have helped. If only there were little signs above us. ‘In need of hug’ or ‘Have extra hug to give.’ In the spirit of that I left this at our neighbourhood Starbucks.
I asked them to give it to the next parent who came in with smalls. I feel weird sharing this, but the goal is maybe it will be catching! Maybe we could all be filled with kindness. Maybe we could take care of each other a little more. I have this feeling like if only… if only we could figure out how to put it out there, and then I found this!!!
I was so in love I should have dragged it home.
So I hope you have a beautiful weekend. I’m sorry the small humans are sucking our time together, that’s the joy of moving. But I really think we’ve got this now! 🤞🏻Check out my Facebook and Instagram for up-to-the-minute video updates and sneak peaks of what we’re up to!! Next week is CRAZY! CRAZY BUSY! I should have some fabulous posts to share.
Have a beautiful weekend, throw some confetti!
