Little K started nursery when she was around 11 months in preparation for me going back to work. Since then we have been caught up in a whirlwind of snot, coughs, sniffle and eye gunk (what a pretty picture I paint!), but she loves it. From day one we have not had a single tear (on either side!) and since Day 2 she is practically running from me when we arrive.
Last Friday, when I left her, she ran off to start playing, turned around and blew me a kiss, I blew a kiss back, said goodbye and walked out. And I cried. (We’re not talking full blown sobbing, but there was definitely more than a single tear!)
