Hanny pants and I had an awesome day today. We went to a 4th birthday party for one of her little buddies from her ‘old creche’. Old creche is the childcare centre she attended while I was studying and she was there from 16 weeks old until the end of last year… so a good 3 years.
Being at the birthday party and seeing all the kids that Han had grown up alongside at creche and all the parents who were struggling alongside me as students brought up a bit of a nostalgic feeling. I miss them all so much!
I love Han’s new creche with all my heart but her old one was just so familiar and we really felt we belonged there.
Ah well… gotta move on at some point!
On our way home from the party we stopped in at Aro Cafe and had a fluffy and latte – our drinks of choice. Han was exhausted but was terribly well behaved and managed to win over a few of the wait staff in the short time we were there. While it seems so terribly indulgent to go out for coffee with your toddler, it’s something I really enjoy doing with the kid. She gets to play grown up and I get to enjoy my latte and have silly conversations at the same time. Much better than the early days when going to a cafe meant chasing Hannah around every 5 seconds to stop her escaping out the door.
She’s growing up!
