Mia has only 5 weeks now till she turns 5 years old and is off to school, a fact that is making me feel a little saddened as it is a true ending to the way things currently are. I am spending a lot of time wondering where the time has gone, and wishing I had somehow slowed it all down just a bit. Life just gets busy, that’s the way it is. You couldn’t find a more excited little girl at the prospect of school, so clearly any sadness is to belong only to me. Mondays are our Mama & Mia day, so today I made her and Reuben an owl each to cuddle. They seem to really like them – though only in our household (thanks to having an older brother) can you hear a mother say “they are NOT battle-owls”
Thanks to everyone who entered my Facebook giveaway – and congratulations to Krissy who my sweet little nearly-five-year-old drew from the bowl this afternoon.
