Xavier with flowers and last day at Busy Bees
Today was Xavier’s last day at Busy Bees morning nursery. I’m not normally sentimental about children moving onto the next stage. My usual heartless reaction is delight that they’ll be spending more hours at school and that I’ll be able to fit the day job into those hours without paying too much for childcare. However I did feel close to tears when I picked him up. The staff have been so wonderful over the past two years – I shall so miss their welcoming faces in the mornings. I was given a lovely book, recording Xavier’s last two years – full of observations about his development and photos of his days at the nursery. I shall treasure it forever.
By the way I’m sorry I haven’t been replying to comments. I’ve been feeling really under the weather for some time and can only just about manage my quick sketch a day. Anyway hopefully I’ll be feeling better soon.
