Mummy says… It has been quite an emotional time lately. Big sister Lea has handed in all her college course work and finishes this week, as well as starting a new job at Tesco. She will be starting to prepare for Uni in London in September. Big bro Luke has now finished his GCSE’s, finished school and had his school prom last Friday….
It is the end of another era. Time flies by so quickly – we are half way through this year already – I am still getting over Christmas! We have had major milestones for the last few years – with four children there is always something beginning or ending, a big birthday, a new first to celebrate.
I am thankful every day for my children – for being blessed with four amazing human beings who I get to call my children. They teach me as much as I teach them, and I am super proud of each one of them.
Being a single mum is not easy. Transporting teens her there and everywhere is as exhausting as looking after a 5 year old. Worrying about each one – for very different reasons is exhausting. But having my eldest daughter call me and talk to me like her best friend, having my teen son tell me he loves me every time he talks to me, having my teen daughter thanking me every day for being the best mum, and having my Ickle Pickle telling me he has a tummy pain because he misses me so much makes me the happiest, proudest Mumma ever.
As another school / college year draws to an end it is the end of another era in our family. We are looking forward to spending the summer together as much as we can and having lots of adventures before lots of big changes in September. Pickle will have left Early Years and moves into Year 1 (how did that happen?), Luke starts a Creative Media course in college, Lea starts at a music Uni in London and my eldest, MiMi is planning to travel to Bali towards the end of the year on her own.
So, we have lots to look forward to – how is your year going?
