The Path of True Love

Yesterday was a day of street parties at the children's schools.  I spent the morning with Charlie at his playschool and it was so nice to spend a couple of hours with him in the school environment and to truly see how he interacts with the other children and teachers.  It was also a chance to see him in action with his little girlfriend.

They are just like a little old married couple walking along hand in hand.  Where one goes the other is never far behind.  They were having great fun playing with dinosaurs, which involved lining them all up and feeding them sticks for their snacks before burying them in the sand pit and finally washing them in the water tray.  It was hungry work so it wasn't long before they were both tucking into a party dinner consisting of cheese sandwiches, sausage rolls and a huge amount of fairy cakes, all washed down with orange cup drinks.

It was whilst sat side by side paper plates precariously balanced on knees that Charlie decided to make his move and tried to plant a kiss on his girls cheek.  Luckily she was 10 steps ahead of him and gave him that warning glare that told him don't you dare! It didn't stop him in his tracks he still continued to gaze dolefully into her eyes with his lips puckered.  Sadly he failed in his mission.

Before long there was heartbreak.  His girl opted to go and play with her girlfriends leaving Charlie non to happy.  Finding him sitting dejectedly on the edge of the sandpit with the weight of the world on his little shoulders.  "What's up mate?"I asked, "my girlfriend doesn't love me anymore" he sighed.  "Want a cuddle off your mummy?" To which he got up, ran to me,almost knocked me off my feet, threw his arms around me and snuggled up.  After a little cuddle and a heart to heart he was good to go.  Running off he spotted the paint roller in the water table and proceeded to chase all the girls making them all scream while his eyes glinted with mischief.

I can see that he is growing up to be a little heart breaker and he is going to have loads of girls swooning over the little monkey. 

Then there's my little Princess who looked so grown up going to her party.  It's scary how quickly she is growing up. I sat last night just thinking about where the last 7 years have gone.  It doesn't seem two minutes ago that she was a baby in the arms.  So much has happened these past few years not just the whole separation and divorce but she has dealt with everything that has been thrown at her so bravely and I am so proud of my little girl.
