My husband had a rare day off work and we all went out for the day. Our eldest was very interested in Daddies dinner
She was watching rather intently at the food on the plate, a bowl of pasta and salad. My husband let her have some pasta before getting up to very kindly get me my salad. Slight mistake on his part as whilst he was gone she saw her opportunity to have a bit more pasta
She only had the one piece and then said 'Thank you Mummy', which made me smile.
I felt even more pride when our dinner was brought to us and placed on the table she said thank you to him for bringing her lunch. This was the first time she had said thank you to someone who she had never met before, for fetching food whilst out, without prompting. I was very proud.
A further proud moment came tonight, at our first parent evening. Its always nice to be told your children are doing well. I have wondered for sometime if she is settling ok at nursery and tonight looking at her photos and hearing from her key worker I know she is happy.
My youngest, not to be forgotten, made me proud today too as it was the first time she had not cried when I left her with her Grandma. A day full of firsts and a day full of proud moments.
This day I love firsts and proud moments.
