This little stool that Theo is standing on was a purchase at Ardingly Antiques Fair and it’s been so useful. Suddenly he’s got the freedom to reach the sink on his own and wash his hands independently. I honestly don’t know why it took me so long to get one, except for the fact it took me till this month to see something I actually liked.
This week Theo started full days at nursery and the transition has been very smooth. He already loved his half days and accepted the news of the longer stays without question. It’s a time of growing independence for us both. For him to be away from the home with children of his own age and for me to rediscover the potential of long uninterrupted hours.
Though he was still a two year-old a couple of weeks ago we suddenly find ourselves applying for primary schools already. He will be the baby of his year, but he’s tall, outgoing and bright and I think (hope) he’ll be ready next September.
