So Halloween came a few days early for me when my hairdresser of many years said those words women around the globe dread to hear…’Oh look, it’s your first grey hair.’ Panic stirred inside me & I started having a ‘late twenties’ crisis (I hate to think what my mid life one will be like haha!) What have I achieved? Where is my life going? Will I ever meet the one? Will I have more babies?
It seems like everything has flown by so quickly, I can remember being at reception in school…and now I have a daughter that goes to the very same school – with some of the teachers that taught me (wonder how old that makes them feel!) I remember my 18th, my 21st and all the years inbetween like it was yesterday but it wasn’t and that scares me. I wish I could go back and savour every moment good or bad. It’s like I was born…I fast forwarded 27 years…and now I’m a grey haired (one hair…but still) *almost 30 year old 😱 when did life pass me by. Btw I know how totally dramatic I sound but one grey hair at a time my youth is slipping further and further away – so my crisis drove me to create a tinder account (I will update you in my next post about this lol) book in for more regular hair maintenance appointments and I brought my first ever hat 😂 I may never take it off, how did you cope when you found your first one and how old were you? I know some people don’t mind…but for me – grey is not okay haha x
How are all the parents out there coping with the struggle of our little ones going to full time school? The first two weeks for me were absolutely awful…she would cry before we got there…cry when I left her…and have the biggest smile on her face when she came out – but still repeat the whole crying routine every morning! We’d just managed to get to no tears – then she was off for a week with a really bad ear infection in both ears…so when it was time for school it was like starting reception all over again including the waterworks.
Since then I have to admit she has been fine up until the last two days, Wednesday the teacher called me and said Lulu had been knocked over by an older child…then yesterday I got called in to pick her up with a black eye, a bloody nose and a bruised ego when a football had been accidentally kicked into her face by…you guessed it an older child! She’s nervous about going to school anyway and I’m worried she’ll start to get a complex the poor thing so the teachers got an ear bashing about not letting the year 2’s and the reception babies play together as the year 2’s are too rough!
If I could wrap her in bubble wrap I would but I know we need to let them grow up! I hope she has a lovely, problem free day today so hopefully her school can take my number off of their speed dial lol! Hope all your babies are settling in fabulously at their new schools and you parents aren’t feeling the really bad empty nest syndrome like me…god knows what I’ll be like when the day comes that she actually does leave home 😉 x
