My baby is Three. Three already.
I am wondering if today is really the right time to type this post. We have had an amazing week of birthday celebrations and Olivia has been over excited but exhausted at the same time. We have missed a lot of sleep! So i want to try and focus on the positives and type a happy post but i just cant stop thinking about the negatives of her turning Three.
My baby is no longer a baby, and she is no longer a toddler i guess. Like most Mums and Daughters we are extremely close and do everything together. She does not go to Pre school as we moved to a different county a few months ago therefor she is with me every single day.
In September she will be starting nursery. I have no worries about her settling in as she is a real social butterfly and i certainly am not left reasoning about how i am going to spend those hours as i run my own business from home but i am really going to miss her. I am unsettled at the fact that we almost certainly will not have any more children due to my Fiance already having Three older kids and also to the fact that i had to undergo a hefty bowel operation this year and suffered a few setbacks.
Being a parent is such an emotional roller coaster but i do feel i am due to give myself credit as i have raised a gentle, loving and honest little person. We still have a few mile stones to crack like giving up the dummy at bed time but maybe i am holding on to that last little bit of baby? Although we did crack toilet training over a extremely short period of time which i was grateful for. I was worried about her starting nursery and still wearing a nappy but we were over it ages ago and before her Third birthday.
I just want to keep her at this age for a little while longer …….
