It was strange driving Little Miss 10 to school today. I hadn’t driven that route since last year and nearly forgot where I was going.
But it was strange for me because it was lonely.
Little Miss 11 has started High School, so Wifey and I have split the drop off duties since the 2 schools are in different directions. This morning it was just me and Little Miss 10. I was missing the friendly or sometimes antagonistic banter between the girls. And to think it will be like this for the next 2 years!
I carried her schoolbag – heavy with all her brand new, freshly covered exercise books, absolutely clean and not dog-eared text books and labelled stationery – to her class and then watched with a smile as she unpacked it all proudly into her desk and chair bag.
And this, everyone, is as tidy and clean as it will ever be 🙂
