So the dreaded conversation already took place in “Big School”. Who’s in your family?. I obviously wasn’t there (as much as I’d love to have been!!) but apparently there was lots of talk about how some children have Mom’s and Dad’s, some have just a Mom, some just a Dad, some have 2 Mom’s and 2 Dad’s etc… (Do not envy the teacher on this lesson at all!) apparently the tiny human sat quietly, not breathing a word. I was surprised, as normally she would pipe up “My Daddy’s in heaven!!” As if it’s some sort of achievement 😏 I’m guessing it’s the new surroundings, the new friends and not knowing the other children as much. I’ve always been very open about where Daddy is and as I result I think it’s helped her process it as she’s gotten older.
Then came the picture. Her first proper “This is my family” picture.
It’s perfect. It’s so perfect it made me cry. Made my heart do a little flutter. Obviously I’d like it to be different, obviously it’s not exactly how I imagined it would be, but I am totally embracing life with my little family, and I am so proud of my tiny human for embracing it with me 💕
