I didn't cry until...

......my son bawled his eyes out and said "But I want my Kitty" as she trotted off into her classroom, having given him the most gorgeous kiss and a cuddle saying " Don't worry Harry , I will see you at the end of the day".

THEN.. the teacher had our kids give us a little take home pressie. A tissue, a tea bag, a freddo frog and this poem...


I mean seriously what is a girl to do?. I felt like I had a tennis ball in my throat but was so touched.. Hey her teacher is called Tess, she has to be awesome huh?!

Proud Parents.. of course

Yep, just a little blinded, totally awkward but obligatory

Grandparents in on the act..*

"bye guys" and please note dribbling mess of brother on my hip

and then she was gone...

our poor little fella, parted from his sis for the first time in 4 years!**

* anyone noticed how much weight my Dad has lost since this? and now you can see the height diff I was talking about here

** he was fine about 20 mins later when I took him to the park although he did ask about 58 times in the first 2 hours " Mummy, please we go pick Kitty Up?". When at 1pm I was able to say " Lets just get some paint , pop it home then we can go get Kitty " he said "Oh Mummy you are the bestest in the whole of London".. thanks buddy :)

  3. Oh my, this makes me teary to read. What a sweet poem. I have my big girl starting kindy next week (4 year old here in WA for a 5 day fortnight) and the thought of her being away from me several days a week is already making me a bit sad :( Hope your daughter enjoyed the first day in her new classroom xx

  4. Hi Tessa:)
    I miss seeing your smiling face at preschool drop off! Such a lovely post and so happy to see it went well. I do so feel for your little man though, it will be quite traumatic for him to be without her. All the very best:)
