We visited the zoo on Wednesday and the 5yo was intent on showing his class mascot, Little Bear, as many animals as possible. I caught his smile in this reflection.
I’m joining in with Charly’s Black and White Photography Project over on PODCast.
This week we had the company of Little Bear, the 5yo’s Kindergarten class mascot. For those of you not familiar with this preschool/school joy; your child gets the class ‘friend’ home for a weekend and you get to take it on exciting trips and write all about it in a journal…
Where to begin with a post about Christmas? With memories of childhood Christmases perhaps? Or what about Christmas traditions or Christmas wishes? Perhaps the excitement on our children’s faces on Christmas morning; the joy of a Christmas spent with family?
Yesterday I took the kids on an impromptu visit to the zoo after school. We only had an hour before it closed, but they didn’t mind; they were free to run around and see the few animals left that can survive a New England winter, and that made them happy.
This blogging lark is really rather amazing. It is fun and fulfilling, scary and all consuming. It gives us an opportunity to communicate; to reach out, to seek comfort and to give support in return. It allows us to be creative and brave and honest. It gives us a voice.
As mumturnedmom turns two today, I can’t help but reflect on the past year.
How many years does it take for something to become a tradition? Is twice enough, or do you have to do it for a third year to really make it stick?
