Good-bye Kindy

Today we cross a new threshold – we say good-bye to our kindy journey.

Flip started kindy at 4 and has attended 2 kindies during his year of ‘kindy work’.

He has had a wonderful time and grown so much as a little person.

We have been thrilled with both his kindies.

This afternoon he and I went on what is to become a birthday tradition.

A ‘date’ at The Cupcake Collection after a special visit to the Reading Bug where he can pick his gift.

With such gorgeous shops so close to home you can see why I’m keen to make this a tradition.

I asked him if he wanted me in jeans or a dress and he chose the dress. (I’m wearing a skirt but close enough).

I want him to know this is special to me too and I want to make an effort. This is my little way of trying to ensure that hanging out one on one with mum will be something normal they grow up with.

One journey finished and a new one begins.

Precious times.
