Only one more day left and then another school year will be over.
Miss Frugal is going up into Year 5 and Master Frugal is going to be moving up to the dizzy heights of Year 3 where apparently you get to play in the big playground ‘away from those little kids’.
Funnily enough though, it’s not the knowledge that they’re both moving up a year at school that’s made me feel a little bit sad tonight. It’s the fact that when I cleaned the front of my fridge earlier on tonight, they both decided they were too old for all the ‘babyish’ fridge magnets.
They’re not particularly special fridge magnets, we’ve had most of them for years and they’re tatty and probably in need of a good clean themselves – it’s more the idea that they are growing up and think that they’re babyish for them. For the last few years, they’ve made sentences with the words while I’ve been cooking the tea, Miss Frugal used to try and help Master Frugal with his words by spending hours reading them with him and they’ve re-enacted Monsters inc. more times that I can remember using the characters.
So now that we’ve got rid of the fridge magnets, I’m feeling a little bit sad that my two babies aren’t really babies any more.
Does anyone else sometimes feel like this or is it just me?
