Enjoy every single moment…

In less than a week my first born ,my eldest daughter,  my little princess as me and her daddy call her is starting school..big school! Time put a stop so I can enjoy more these days before life of responsibilities starts for her.

I know I’ve been  writing a lot about her and her sister these last couple of months but the reason is that I am trying to make as many memories as possible but still time seems to slip through…my fingers…

If I close my eyes I can perfectly see the moments…

…when I was walking with my husbands through the hallways and stairs in St. George’s Hospital in London…

..walking the streets around the hospital and how the three of us sat drinking one last drink in that pub around the corner…the name of the pub…I can’t remember it…

…how scared and excited was my mum and inpatient all at the same time to see and hold her first grandchild…you my lovely and precious Kara Maureen!

And then after a long and hard labour you appeared….

..and start screaming…

Kara and mummy

…and O my how you screamed…

But then you stopped and how lovely was to hug and kiss my beautiful baby…you Kara Maureen!

There were nights when all you were ding is to cry and poop and nights when you let us have a rest and slept through but that’s when I was more concerned…

“Is she breathing?”

“I hope nothing is wrong with her!”

“I will just go and check on her!”

I loved you so much that I couldn’t stay away from you.

This is how I cannot understand how you grow unto be such an independent little girl!

Maybe was true fact that mummy and daddy had to put you in nursery when you were only 9 months old..maybe it was the fact that mummy was working late nights and suffered of postnatal depression…

I don’t know. But the fact that you are so independent doesn’t hurt you. It just makes you an even more special child.

You loved your baths ever since you were a baby…

Now the time has come for her to start Class Zero as its called here (reception) and she surprises us more and more each day through her kindness, intelligence and beauty.

The other day she had to go to a psychologist to have a chat. You see if kids are younger that they should be when they start school ( even that is only a couple of months) they need to go through this test in order for the psychologist to check if she is apt to start school.

She was great and the result was that she will have no problems to start school. Why I am telling you this though is that I wanted to tell you how much she impress the psychologist and her mummy with the answer to one of the questions:

P: If you see a house on fire what do you do?

K: I’m going to help.

How good is that? A grownup answer!

Parents..time is passing fast and your crying baby will soon become the child that goes to school and has responsibilities…and then shortly after the adult. Take time and enjoy those cuddles. And kiss and hug…and make sure you never get too upset with them…even when they cry, scream and kick.

I am trying to take advantage of the fact that I am home now with both my girls…Try and enjoy every simple minute and moment as if you will they will certainly will to.
