A New Chapter!

Today a new chapter starts for me and my children. Today my oldest starts pre-school which means the start of 5-day schooling and my little one starts 3 full-day kindergarten, so for the first time in a very long time I will have some completely child-free time.  For the past three years, I have always had one or both of the children, all the time. 

Im excited and nervous at this prospect, to finally have free time to concentrate on things without a child following me or requesting my attention every two minutes will be great.  I know the first few days, especially today will be very strange, and very quiet and like many mums I will have that first day apprehension of wondering how they are getting on.  I dont think I will be sad, I am excited for this new step for them and me, a step of growth and learning.  I was sad when Sophie finished kindergarten at the end of July, with the feeling of losing my baby, but now Im excited to start this next chapter.  And for me, it gives me time to focus on growth and development of my own, if I can find myself again! 

We're ready, let's Go!!  Time to turn the page


  1. Yay! Enjoy it! And send me a postcard from mama freedom land ;)

  2. *waves hand* still cant find enough time to et everything done though, getting used to the quiet!!

  3. Have fun with that new chapter. It will happen for me next September:)
