On a rare afternoon when it wasn’t raining last week I took Theo to our local playground and saw for the first time the little social life that is opening up before him.
There were two little girls of his age there, one whom he greeted with great enthusiasm by name and another who we hadn’t met before but it turns out will be in his class at Primary School next September. Within minutes he was bouncing around the playground with them, throwing himself with huge enthusiasm into every game they wanted to play and loving the attentions of his little girl pals.
It’s not just these new friends that have appeared from nowhere. Over the last few weeks we’ve also had other glimpses into a world we don’t see. First he started singing the Meghan Trainor song with wonderful misheard lyrics of “Double Bubble, no trouble.” then it was Let It Go from Frozen, a film that none of us had actually seen yet.
He may be barely three, but he’s so ready for school next September. I think he’s going to love it!
