As we left the house to go to school yesterday the wee girl demanded that I take a photo. Perhaps my insistence on first day of school photos has had more of an impact than I imagined, or perhaps she just loves having her photo taken. Whatever the reason, we duly stopped and had an impromptu photo shoot.
The usual comedy ensued and we left for school with a set of entertaining images.
We also left for school with a photograph of the three, all ready for their day of school. Together.
Even after a week of all three being in school, I am still struggling to get my head around this change in our dynamic.
We had such a wonderful summer, our best yet, and I was sad to see it end. We had a great time ticking things off our summer bucket list, and I could almost see the kids growing in front of my eyes. They have all shot up and seeing them standing together, all ready for school, makes me realise just how much they are growing up.
And, it’s really exciting to watch.
As a threesome they still have an amazing ability to wind each other up; that’s what siblings do! But, for each ear splitting, bickering, annoying moment there are moments like this one. Where the wee girl suddenly grabs her brothers, despite their very loud protests. (To be fair, they had both just taken a huge bite of doughnut…).
Grabs them because she wants to give her boys a hug.
Despite their protests, they love it, and so do I.
The three are growing up. They continue to amaze, amuse and drive me nuts by equal measure.
But I hope that never stops.
