My Little Shadow…

My Little Shadow…

We’ve been on half term this week and it’s been a lovely week with both my girls. We’ve had days at home, days out and seeing friends and family.

What has been constant throughout the week, and in fact every school holiday, is that my little Holly is my shadow. She is generally quite an independent little girl, she is happy to play on her own and can make her own entertainment. She is a very loving little girl, but only gives cuddles and kisses when she wants to. Except in the school holidays.

She completely changes, she doesn’t leave my side, she doesn’t want to go anywhere without me. She doesn’t want me to go anywhere without her. She cuddles and kisses me constantly, and if I ask for a cuddle, she runs instantly over to me.

I miss her every day she is at school, it’s been nearly six months since she started and I would still love to turn back the clock and have her home with me. And I think she feels the same. Holly loves school, she happily runs in every day, loves playing with her friends and enjoys all the fun things they get to do. But, seeing her in the holidays I think she definitely misses me too and being at home with me.

I love it, those extra snuggles, the kisses, that little hand in mine on every single walk, and I even love that Mummy has to do everything for her, even when I’m exhausted and it would be nice if Daddy did it.

She is a special little girl and I know that she has a special place in a lot of people’s heart, that love her. I’m the lucky one that gets to be her Mummy, and I will always miss my baby girl.

    Awwwww!! How lovely she’s such a cutie. I must admit I gravitate towards Kipper who still needs me. Monkey is fiercely independent and doesn’t need me as much. But Kipper is much more a mummy boy. That said I miss them both and worry that we are doing the right things and making the most of moments while they are little. Thats one I don’t have an answer to.

    It’s so lovely that she makes up for that missed time in the holidays. I always used to miss T so much when he was at school and even now – 18 months into his school life – he will be like a shadow to me when he’s not at school x

    Ahh it’s funny because Harry is the same with me too. Whenever we have a school holiday or the weekend, he is right there by my side, like he is missing spending time with me since school started, just like I have too. It’s so lovely but so hard when they go back!
