This is a bumblebee I made with my toddler this week for her last ever tots’ music session. I wanted to make the effort to actually bother with the herculean task of crafting with a two year old, as this week felt like a bit of a milestone.
Not only has my toddler just had her last music session but, more importantly, she has had her last day with the two childminders who have cared for her, cuddled her and played with her since January last year.
Today has been a day of ends.
But, rather than feel sad for reaching the final twist of one journey, I’m going to focus on looking ahead to another. Frog has two weeks off over Easter and then it’s full pelt into nursery five mornings a week for the summer term.
Five mornings at nursery. Nursery. It seems so grown up. I don’t know how long this current stretch will last, due to our moving plans and various work commitments, but I do know she will both miss the last phase and enjoy the new one.
You blink and a year passes your eyes in an instant.
