She has spent this tumultuous time preparing my grand-daughter and ensuring that she understood that the world is not a scarey place, and that her mother will always come back. Alannah has been taken for half-days by Grandad and by Ma. She has been to Playgroup. She meets other children at Mothers' Group. She meets them at Rhyme Time in the library.
So yesterday was her first Friday. Mother was excited/anxious/happy/proud. All those things. As was Ma. Alannah is a contemplative child. She spends a lot of time absorbng. However, she also has a voice that she uses when splashing ducky in the bath. She was fine. But when she got home she slept for 2 1/2 hours and was still rubbing her eyes.
No matter what we have seen or experienced over the last few weeks, the world is a good place to enter into and to explore.
