Sophia and I were playing in the kitchen this morning.  I will miss the background noise she creates around me, little footsteps pitter-pattering everywhere, her constant chatter, and her wanting my attention.  She starts kinder this year and already my heart hurts and I miss her.  I know she will be perfectly fine and she can’t wait to start.  It’s me that is feeling the strings stretch out another few inches and as much as I want to let go, I find myself reaching out and wishing I could reel her in again.  We rolled around and tickled and laughed, and I tried to catch a few moments of ‘everyday’ at the same time.  Everyday, that becomes the most precious thing of all when it’s not there.  I wonder if I will count the hours till lunch time each day, when I’ll pick her up and find out all about the amazing time she’s had?  M x

    Mel, how precious! Enjoy these last days, but remember to enjoy your “time out”, too!

    Mel, those oven shots are precious. I love her looking at herself and then noticing you watching.
