Monday saw my baby turn into a ‘big girl’. It is funny when your children turn three, they are no longer babies, not even toddlers and heading at a rapid rate of knots towards school. A is already wise beyond her few years. You can have a pretty decent conversation with her about Tom and Jerry (her current absolute favourite thing in the world), she loves to ‘help’ with lots of jobs and when she flies out of the playgroup door to throw her arms around me, she really does give the best hugs too.
She has been extremely over excited about her birthday and as it was on Monday, she had a three day birthday spectacular with family visitors over the weekend. She loved all of her presents especially her regulation pink Hello Kitty bike and has had the best time

But the most incredible thing that A has done this week is start her ‘big girl’ swimming lessons. The boys have lessons in a private swimming pool and although it is overdraft increasingly expensive, it has been money well spent as both boys are becoming fine swimmers. A and I have been going to a mother and baby group at the same pool for over a year and to begin with, it was a really lovely half an hour of dancing around, singing and playing games in the pool. I loved it and it was amazing to see how A grew in confidence in the water in just a few months.
