… the Kindergarten run.
On a Monday and Friday we have our little routine and it has become one of Lil G and I’s Ordinary Moments.
We walk hand in hand to Kindergarten. We talk about our weekend, about the week, about the day ahead, about what makes us happy. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this time together.
It’s a lovely way to start the week. It’s so much of a rush on my 3 commuting days, therefore it’s a welcome relief when we can take our time and not dash for the door at 7.45am. On those days when he decides to sleep in a little later, I am glad that I don’t have to pull him from his beautiful dreams. On those days when he wants to play with his toys, I am glad that I don’t have to say no. On those days when for some reason which I am yet to understand he decides to have an almighty tantrum, I can let it be, I don’t have to get myself stressed, I can walk away and like magic it disappears.
I do wonder if Lil G’s enthusiasm for walking to Kindergarten will soon disappear as the winter months make their entrance. However on our little shopping trip this weekend, we chose a little umbrella just for him. He apparently cannot wait for it to rain! Eek.
The walk to Kindergarten is just lovely. We wander down a couple of paths, we bump into the Lollipop man (more on him here), cross a main road which enables us to practice our Stop, Look & Listen. We then have a lovely marsh area to wander around which Lil G absolutely loves to explore, before we step on to the road to Kindergarten, which at the minute is lined by lovely autumnal trees.
Is there a better way to start the day?
And then there is a Friday. The last working day of the week. All day I am thinking about the moment when I can collect Lil G from Kindergarten knowing that we have 2 whole days to spend as Our Little Family. He is filled with so much excitement. Desperate to run across the marsh rather than around it as we do on the morning walk. Is Daddy home yet?
We also have a little tradition which we do on a Friday. We take a selfie. Lil G is mastering his smile and certainly isn’t camera-shy. He even understands the term selfie. This makes me smile a lot. For those of you reading this that don’t know me too well, I am a snap happy mummy, always pointing a camera in Lil G’s face, therefore the fact that he now poses and asks me to take a picture is just super and again makes me smile a lot.
