Well last day of nursery and it all went wrong .
Ever have a picture in your head about how things will go? . I do and it never goes the way I hoped. Gary , my husband, says I am idealistic. I like to think I am positive with a bit of magic lol. It started with a tantrum because ……. she woke up . Thats my conclusion anyway as not one thing happened before that and my eyes hadnt even opened yet.
she then wouldnt get dressed with out a lot of “get dressed now before we are late” shouted at her . I was tired before even getting to nursery .
She went in fine but complained about the hat I made as it didnt fit and she didnt like it and she didnt want to wear it . SIGHHHHH
The parents were to go back at 10:30 for a little tea party and when I went in she come running up all smiles . I gave her a bit hug and she then said I WANT CHOCOLATE ( the chocolate we made) but I didnt know where anything was as its not MY nursery ha ha . That resulted in tears and the teachers asking “whats wrong April” it ends up the chocolates were out in the kid room and she was free to get them but ‘couldnt’ with out me . So there I am feeling very uncomfortable wandering around the nursery with the shy crying child (let it be known she is not shy any other time at nursery or at home) She then ‘demands ‘ crisps which I said no and was starting to get annoyed with the spoilt child in the room, and annoyed it was my child .
She didnt take part in the first half of the games they did and instead just cried. I now wished I hadnt bothered.
Second half she did take part and I felt like a breakthrough . The end came and we left with april crying bcause she couldnt find the hat she made. You know the one she hated and wouldnt wear.
I wanted to start a tradition that at the end of every school year she got a balloon but now I was stuck between the tradition not getting started and spoiling an already spoilt child . We picked up daddy and I ranted to him about my day and then got to the balloon shop for a successful balloon purchase.
Its now half 7 and April is in bed, the balloon is burst and in the bin (child stamped on it) and mummy is opening some wine. Dont judge . Tomorrow is a new day . Thankfully
Here are some of the better pictures….hiding the bad parts of the day (pictures are good at that )
