This afternoon, I’ll be heading to school to watch my fourth play of the week. Little H along with her Year R friends were utterly adorable in their version of The Very Hopeless Camel, a play I first watched three years ago when Z was in Year R. She chose to be a donkey and sang her little heart out in every performance even adding some embellishments of her own, which made me giggle and almost brought a tear to my eye at the same time. Her little face doing some of the actions was a picture, one I want to hold in my mind forever. She scrunched up her nose, hand on hips and leant forward when Herod was cross and swung her imaginary baby with gusto when on the stage. She was just brilliant. A star in the making.
I’ve found myself feeling a bit sad this morning, sad that that’s a big milestone of her Year R over already, and I know from experience how fast the year goes from here on.
Little S was amazing in her play as well, despite being a little worried about speaking in front of everyone yesterday morning, she spoke loudly and confidently, also singing away the whole time. I can’t quite believe my girls are growing up so very fast.
In one way I’m lucky that I get to watch my girls more than once in their plays, we get 4 tickets per child to spread over the three performances and as we don’t have any family close by the play watching falls to me, which I love, but it also makes me a bit sad that my children don’t get their Grandparents watching them like other children do. Luckily, I’ve just discovered KatchUp which is a great way to share important memories with family and friends. Unlike social media platforms KatchUp is private so you can invite those most important to you to share memories, past and present. You can even get your memories transformed into gorgeous keepsakes.
How do you hold onto special memories?
