Musings of a 4YO - a final ever for Esme

The girls are off out this morning to the library (bit slow in getting the Creepy Crawling reading challenge off the blocks, but hey, better late than never right?) when Esme turns to Sofia with such enthusiasm:

E: Sofia, isn't it brilliant that I don't have to go to school anymore?

FOOTNOTE: Oh how this final 4YO musing is tinged with sadness. For me as her mummy, for Sofia as her sister, but also for Esme herself. Oh sweet child of mine, how the wheels are going to fall off my darling. For you do have to go to school again, and soon.

No matter how much you, my highly strung 4YO have wound me up on occasion over this long summer break, I have loved every minute of having you around - and not having to share you with school. I know your little sister feels exactly the same.

And when Esme, you return next week as a YEAR ONE, (at just turned five-years-old), I can safely say that Fia and I will both be missing you, far too much.
