I seriously can’t believe it.
What a different boy!!!
Today was Ben’s (2nd) first day of Kindy. Andrew and I decided to keep Ben in Kindergarten another year. We had the choice to move on to Prep but it just didn’t feel right. I think it is the teacher in me that really wanted him to have another year. I want to see his confidence grow a little more before he enters formal schooling. This morning Ben showed me we had made the right decision. If only you knew how many times I walked out of Kindy last year with tears in my eyes watching my little man upset or struggle. But not today…… he stood tall, proud and confident.
He was asking children their names – Last year he was clinging on to me not saying a word.
He engaged in an activity without any encouragement – Last year he showed little interest.
He told me I could go home – Last year he was crying and my heart was heavy.
I have walked out of Kindy this morning knowing my little man is happy and in the best hands. A great start to what will be a fabulous year!!

How Wonderful! “Music to Aunty Teeny’s ears”.
Cam and I can’t believe how much he has grown up over the holidays.
Can’t wait for a painting (or like big cousin Tom, ‘lego box construction’) for my fridge!
WE ARE DE;LIGHTED FOR YOU AND ANDREW THAT BEN’S CONFIDENCE AND MATURITY IS COMING THROUGH AND OF COURSE IT’S ALSO GREAT FOR BEN. JUST EXCELLENT.
Aunty Tam, Uncle Philba and your smallest cousin Gracie McGoo are all very proud of you Ben. Wow you are growing up so fast. I bet you are going to have a very exciting and fun year at kindy. Love you lots and lots xxxooo
As mother’s we always question ourselves but always know in our heart what the right thing to do with our kids. It’s good to see the confidence in Ben and that would make you very happy too.
