My youngest (Ophelia) started school yesterday!! Just a half day to start off with, so as a treat when she finished, we whizzed into London and went to the oldest Open Air Theatre in Regent’s Park to see our friend performing in Hello Dolly.
Ophelia was transfixed, delighted and totally inspired!! It was, of course an amazing show, and I sat there proud as punch with my little girl next to me, tears running down my cheeks here and there - a magical afternoon without a doubt!
Anyway, where does this big day go? In the bank of wonderful memories to be treasured forever? Oh absolutely but also in the bank of turbo charged life experiences! This morning she came to me fully dressed and ready to go to school telling me, “Mummy, I want to live on my own now. I want to dance with Cornelius… because I know how to dance Mummy and I would like my shoes and my jackets in my room now."
… how about that for growing up overnight… sniff sniff!! She ran into her classroom this morning with a smile, a wave and a big kiss, all grown up!
