In school, Seren has experienced her first sports day, spelling bee, and school report.
How pleased was I to read how suited my daughter is to her name.
Tom & Seb experienced their first 'graduation', albeit theirs will be next year. We were able to witness their differences in a school setting, how seriously Tom takes his education at this young age, putting his heart and soul into his singing and counting; how Seb has his Daddy's boredom threshold, his sister's stubbornness, and if he sees his mummy, there is a magnet pulling him to her knee.
They intuitively know when all I need is a cwtch.
They intuitively know when all I need is to pretend I am a horse and circle the room with a child shouting 'giddy up' on my back.
They know the value of a bedtime story to bring us home.
And they value each new experience.
From being able to create the momentum to swing high.
To piecing a jigsaw into a picture.
And taking over bedtime reading duties for a short while.
And as I get to be the observer.
To watch their roles unfold.
I remember being a part of my daughter learning to fly a kite.
And standby. As a spectator. As her brothers learn.
