Poor Moo, bad Mummy….
Oh dear – Moo didn’t want to go to nursery today- not sure why, it was possibly sparked by seeing the taxi man in sainsburys just before they were due to pick her up. I sort of thought she would be fine when they got here and got her ready, although she kept saying no in an uncertain sort of way. The taxi arrived and she got to the end of the drive and just started to howl and scream and sob. It was awful. We had friends about to arrive, although she didn’t really know that, and normally i would have chucked everyone in the car and taken her myself to see what happened, but there wasn’t time as they were very close to arriving – i was completely thrown and let them drive away with her howling. I have NEVER done that before :~(( Moo has never ever had anything like that happen. I felt dreadful. The nursery phoned very soon after and said she had arrived and completely settled down and she was fine when i collected her but it was a bit of a shock :~(
Maybe it was just cos we had a funny weekend; Daddy was away and then we visited my sister – we also had a slightly stressful morning tidying up. Either way its upset my confidence a bit. Trouble is, if i hadn’t let her go in the taxi, tomorrow it would have been an issue too, because NOT going in the taxi would have become a routine. We shall have to see what happens tomorrow but its not something i will allow to happen every day anyway – i felt so mean :~(
Anyway – we had a nice time with friends who visited – her boy locked himself in the bathroom and a locksmith had to be called – slightly stressful (although he and his mummy were a DARN sight calmer than i would have been!) but sort of funny after. We all had a nice day – the kids seemed to really like each other :~) (and the mummies do too!)
What else is new – hama is back in vogue, as is pony beading, necklace making, writing and goodness knows what else. Pud made a lovely necklace with alphabet beads and shell beads tonight, very small holes to thread and worked out how to get her name on to the two sides of a shell bit – which meant getting them the right way up and threading her name backwards – there… logic, motor skills, forward planning and design all ticked for today!!!! Need to come up with a plan for tomorrow – heraldry maybe and folk medicine – i think that would be fun :~)
