Yesterday I was a most unpopular person.

In the morning I had this brilliant idea to ask Bianca to drop Caitlyn off at her class.  As it was I struggled to get shoes on let alone walk properly.  After Sunday's walk I ended up with 2 rather big blisters on the one foot, 2 purple toes on the other foot and rather sore legs (walking is a dangerous sport I tell you...).  And so I was rather thankful that Bianca was able to help me out.

When it was time to get the kids I hobbled / waddled / limped rather uncomfortably to Caitlyn's class and I waited for the bell to go.  When it went, she came out, looked at me and promptly started crying.

"What's wrong???"

"I wanted Bianca to pick me up..."

Sigh!  My 5 year old doesn't need me anymore...

So today I had strict instructions not to wait for Caitlyn and that Bianca would pick her up.  And so when it was time to pick the kids up I dutifully waited at the playground for the kids to come.

Oh the joys of having kids who grow up too fast...

I rather like it when my kids grow up - makes them more responsible faster = less worries for us.

Oh your poor feet and legs - sounds painful!!!
I would take every chance offered to have a rest.
It's lovely your two girls get on so well.
Hope your legs feel better today :)

I get the same reaction sometimes from one of our girls when I show too much interest in her sport. I empathise with you!

Hearing that would have been like a stab to my heart ;) But in a way it's also cool to know that she loves Bianca so much as her big sister.

Oh boo hoo. I dread the day when my son will no longer want to be my little baby, and I will stand there and bawl my eyes out.

But all your stories about both your girls tells me that the time has not come just yet - they still need their Mummy! :-)
