She has gone - she left my protective arms and into a territory so new and exciting. She didn't cry (although 2 other girls did and one dropped out the last second due to fear of missing mommy!!!) So I think I'm rather proud of my sweet girl.
It absolutely chucked it down this morning as we said our farewells which added to my misery. But she alighted the school coach as if she hadn't a care in the world (and rightly so!). I could see her acting all giddy with her friend Magenta as she shot me quick, comforting glances at my saturated head sheltering under my hoody. The bus pulled away and my proud momma moment came as I held back little tears. This is the first time Belle has left my arms in the care of someone other than family in 11 years of her little life. perhaps a little mellow dramatic for some but to me this is monument and paramount for Belle.
To take my mind off my babe fleeing the nest, I scrapped... naturally. And I feel good. Apprehensive but good. So those who have their cubs at home with them this week I urge you to kiss them while you have them cos its horrible when they are not within shouting distance!!
