My two had a lovely summer together. Sure there were the odd fractious moments, but all in all, they got on brilliantly well and the house was filled with shouts, giggles and a lot of activity!
And now everything changes. Now my big girl is at school. It’s early days, but signs are good so far, as she’s really enjoying it. But it means that the siblings are apart, which they’re not used to. I suspect Boo forgets about Little Man when she’s busy at school, playing and making new friends, but when she’s back home, she’s been all the more eager to see him each morning. Little Man asks for her in the day. We’re nice and busy, going to new classes and groups, and then after his lunch and nap-time, we’re picking Boo up from school again so he doesn’t have much time to miss her. Maybe it’s just me that feels sad about them spending less time together. I can’t see it weakening their bond, and I can only see that doing things separately is good for them. I just miss the playtimes, the chaos, even the noise! Ah, I guess that’s what the weekends are for…?!
