  • Mama Marmalade

    What a doll, she is just too cute. As sad as it is they grow up I can’t wait until my fourth babe starts school. A new chapter of freedom! Enjoy your day x

  • GSP

    My heart can’t take the cuteness or the ache I know you’re feeling.

    Massive love to you.

    SHe has grown up SOOOOOO much over the Summer.
    Big hugs mumma.

  • Mother Down Under

    I have been dropping Toddler C off for almost exactly a year now…and even though I know he loves child care and that he is so well looked after when he is there, I still hate saying goodbye.
    On the plus side, picking him up in the afternoon is just about the best thing ever!

    She looks so happy and proud…and ready!

  • Greer

    Whoop! See you there in a few weeks, Harper. Enjoy the silence, mumma xx

    Oh Beth I’m feeling your heart pangs [wipes tear]. Abba has a song for every occasion, and this is no exception …

    Schoolbag in hand
    She leaves home in the early morning
    Waving goodbye
    With an absent-minded smile
    I watch her go
    With a surge of that well-known sadness
    And I have to sit down for a while
    The feeling that I’m losing her forever
    And without really entering her world
    I’m glad whenever I can share her laughter
    That funny little girl

    [more tear wiping] and more to come as I head off to buy a new $75 history text book for absent-minded 15 year old son. See they never stop making you sad, it just manifests in all sorts of ways.

    Thinking of you Beth. Hug.

    • Vicki ShoppeGirls

      You just made me cry. I think of that sone all the time especially when I see my girls walk down the street to the bus stop.

  • Kimmie

    Crying for you! lol

    Oh bless her sweet lil cheeks.


  • Carly Findlay

    The cuteness :) gorgeous girl, hope you have a great day!

  • Angels have Red Hair

  • vancybec

    my. die.
    that smile, those chubby little fingers. bless her, they slay me!
    she looks so happy and confident – make yourself a cup of tea and some banana bread and sob into the mixing bowl while she is off exploring this new world cos you are doing a most excellent job of being her mama!
    sometimes there is nothing for a heavy heart other than to bake!

  • Nikki @ Styling You

    Hang in there Beth! This Mumma-Gig ain’t easy, is it?!
    My heart crushed the day I took my firstborn. I can only imagine how it’ll feel when it’s your lastborn. My heart is aching already at the thought of it!!!!!!

    One word: gorgeous.

    My 3yo started preschool start of Jan and whilst I was dying to let him go (he’s my only child) he was SO ready. No tears, no anxiety and he absolutely adores his teacher and his new friends (“so many friends Mama!”).

    Big hugs to you Beth. x
