When Your Kid Loves Nursery

Those who follow my blog know that settling my youngest son, Alexander, now 2 1/2 into nursery has not been easy for either of us. Having spent most of the first 2 years of his life with either myself or my Mum, initially starting nursery at 2, felt totally foreign to him.

Nursery is Not Working Out

So those who follow me here and on FB know that Alexander, 2 and 4 months, trialled nursery last September after his 2nd birthday and HATED it.

Nursery-I’ve Made a Decision…

So those reading my blog last week will know, it was a pretty rubbish time for myself and Alexander. A lot of tears were shed (by us both). The nursery induction was hard going, which is inevitable but it was worse than expected, Alexander was beside himself and despite another session with me, he just wasn't settling, my toddler wasn't ready.

Starting Nursery-The Heart Wrench

So this morning we took the cute pictures of my toddler Alexander, just 2, in his nursery uniform, the same nursery that his older brother Oliver attended (and pre-school) and loved dearly- and we all smiled sweetly as my nerves were building...another day, another huge milestone for us all (after Oliver started school only last week)!

Oliver Brings All the Girls to the Yard

So my Oliver brings all the girls to the yard...and it's no doubt milk rather than milkshakes senoirs he's still at pre-school but funny nonetheless! Slowly I've noticed over the last few months in particular that young girls are starting to notice him. He's always been popular at nursery (in fact I remember a row of girls standing by the window waving his off aged 2 1/2) but it's becoming a little more obvious now!

Freelance Life-a Juggling Act

Family time! You know what they say, "You want something done, give it to a busy person" and that person is usually me...and I love to be busy. I'm so lucky that I'm able to keep up the juggling act of kids ...
