I know you are in Safe hands but my mind is still wandering around….
thinking of you all the time..
I am sure you are enjoying your time with your friends – and although it is exactly what I am looking forward to, my crazy mothers’ heart is still trying to know if you ever had a feeling that “you missed mum” as I am always missing you here last 2 days….
It is not that you hadn’t been away from me at all in the past 9 years… You ofcourse had been… few times every year, but it was either just a sleep over at your friend’s place for a night, or a play time for few hours or may be just a few days at Grand parents place… BUT….
at all those times, there was some grown up around to look after your needs and you can rely on them all the time…
I know.. You can ask your teachers now ….”BUT …. I KNOW you wouldn’t” and would like to bring the big girl in you and must be trying your best to do everything by yourself.
As a mum, I am really proud of it… AND AS A MUM, thinking that my little girl is getting independent, brings some odd feelings to me! and some times “Happy” tears.
Every meal time makes me remember you more….. thinking… what you would have eaten at every mealtime!? or have you eaten anything at all!?
Looking at the wardrobe makes me think….. Would you ever have managed to choose proper clothing to beat the weather (although I tried my best to pack ALL the things you would need) and still enjoying your adventurous time!
When it rains here, it worries me if you are playing around with wet socks!!!!!
I know I am being silly… I know my little girl is been perfectly trained and brought up by us to handle the situations wisely….. I know my little girl has a very smart big girl in her who can help her to look after herself…. But…. I know …. I am still being silly thinking only about the “little girl” in you when you are away from me….
I hope it is perfectly a normal behavior of “motherhood” and I have so much to tell you when you return and I am so looking forward to seeing you this afternoon and hearing about your days out AND HOW MUCH DID YOU MISS ME :)!!!!
