For a while now you’ve been singing to yourself and also entertaining us with your rendition of popular nursery rhymes like: “Baa baa black sheep (weny weny wool)” or “twinkle twinkle nittle star”. All too precious for words. A few days ago however, you started singing about a “nittle donkey” and “star night, star bright” and it took me a while to catch on. In your school bag was a news letter informing your dad and I that, very soon, your “nittle school” will be hosting a nativity play – and then the light came on! You’ve been rehearsing your songs!!! I nearly cried because I was so surprised that you would remember what you have (obviously) been learning a school and because I KNOW that I am going to BALL MY EYES OUT when I see you doing your thing.
You surprise me daily with the things you say, including your manners. I’m so glad I get to be your (soppy, emotional) mom.
Looking forward to your 1st “nittle” concert.
Love you to the moon and back, Mum xxx
