What a day!
Well, I'll change my words to: WHAT A WEEK! Our dear Lady A is here, installing herself and we're both adapting ourselves to each other. She flew all the way from Thailand and has never been to somewhere with snow ... or hardly outside Thailand, but she is a quick learner and everything works more then well after just four days. She is a girl with high ambitions in life and I like that!
Well enough about that and I'll get back to it soon. This post is and should be about our amazing little son, Alexis. Three days of "invänjning" at pre-school (where the parents needs to be the whole day with the children, so they feel safe when the day comes (today) where you actually leave them there) I mean, was this little boy excited? Oh yeah! He loved it from the first day and everything went so fine. And today came the day when I left him, all by himself for six hour at pre-school. Unfortunately there's so much snow all of the sudden in Sweden, but he was so prepared in the morning and packed his own little bag so proud.
M was most afraid how I would manage and adapt to the big change, but honestly, I've been home with him for almost three years and I know it's a privilege. I'm so humble and grateful for the job I've been able to do with him - but now, he is ready to fly with his own wings. So well behaved (mostly) and so mature.
It was not hard at all, I actually felt so happy and uplifted for him. Being home by myself with two very small children ... the hardest thing I've ever done.
In pre-school he gets so much joy and stimulation from other kids - who could say no to that? I wish I would give the same to little Leon, but no, I don't think I can be home so long with him. I'm eager to do something else also.
