Living Arrows 31/52 – Daisy gets ready to leave Nursery

I can’t believe it… This week is Daisy’s last week at Nursery EVER! 3+ years of Nursery done. Where has the time gone? I know all parents go through the same thought processes as their child ‘levels up’ in life but I just can’t believe it. Daisy has changed so much in those 3 years. Outgrowing lots of her FPIES allergies, and generally just changing so much, all in positive ways.

Living Arrows 30/52 – Daisy spends time learning

There are just 6 weeks now until Daisy starts school. Eek! I’m so excited, but also nervous too. I’m worried about how Daisy will be able to eat at school, and if she will be able to dress herself for P.E lessons BUT I’m also super excited for her to begin to learn to read, and learn maths, and just expand her knowledge so much. Lots of friends have told me that the next year is a HUGE one in her learning, and mindset, and I’m really excited for those changes.

Living Arrows 29/52 – Getting ready for big school!

This time in two months Daisy will be a member of a Primary school. Wow! Where has the time gone? I felt really emotional recently, as I purchased all of Daisy’s school uniform and supplies, mostly because I’m nervous about her allergies and how it will go having dinners at school. I know that I could pack a lunch for Daisy, and she would be really excited, but also I want her to be the same as her peers and sit and eat dinner each day with everyone.

Living Arrows 27/52 – Spending lots of time together

Daisy has been settling back into her routine with Nursery, and seeing her Grandma who is in a ‘social bubble’ with us. It’s been going well, and I’ve really enjoyed the time to get to work, do some DIY around my home and just generally feel like I’m getting back on track. Daisy has been struggling with this a little, so we’ve made a BIG effort to really enjoy our free time together. Living Arrows 27/52 is now live!

Living Arrows 26/52 – Daisy is gaining a routine back

Good morning, happy Monday! Finally it feels like we’re getting a little bit of routine back to our life. By that I mean Daisy is back to Nursery, and really enjoying herself. We’ve been spending more time together when she is home, home is sparkling clean and I feel like I’m getting back on track with my workload too – finally. It has been a long few months, and I really sympathise with those people who are still in the midst of doing all of the childcare for their children, and finding it hard to balance everything. Anyway, Living Arrows 26/52 is now live!
