A Poem To My Twins on The Night Before They Start School

To my sleeping Twinkles,

Tucked up warm in bed,

Tonight is the historical night

Mammas like me dread.

Tonight you’re still my babies,

Tomorrow you’ll be grown,

You’re starting your first day at school,

(I shouldn’t really moan).

But I remember your first breaths,

Your first words and your first steps,

Watching you grow up in three short years,

It’s left me feeling blessed.

Now you’ll meet new friends,

And I’ll hear names that I don’t know,

I can only hope they treat you well,

I’m not sure I want to let you go.

Your new teacher will be guiding you,

She’ll teach you all the time,

Please don’t forget that up ’til now,

All your lessons have been mine.

When I see you dressed in the morning,

In your blazers, ties and shoes,

It’s going to serve as a reminder,

Of the tiny outfits I used to choose.

I can’t believe this day is here,

It’s seemed to come so fast,

As we’re preparing for your future,

I can’t help thinking of the past.

You guys used to be so tiny,

You still are in my eyes,

But look at you all ready to go,

Your morning kisses are my greatest surprise.

Good night my baby Twinkles,

I made you both from scratch,

I hope you sleep better than I probably will,

You need energy to help you run and catch.

Good luck in your first day at school,

I know you’ll do just fine,

Just please remember to give me one last kiss,

And whisper “love you Mamma of mine”.

Trendy Tot Thursday (17/08/2015)

Hello and welcome to another Trendy Tot Thursday with my gorgeous tots, Biscuit and Cracker. 

Last week one of our linky hosts, Clearly Bex, wrote a post about her tots’ school shoes (read it here). Well, as teeny tiny as Biscuit and Cracker are (they’ve just turned 3) they are starting at full-time pre-school in September in full school uniform. This has meant a whirl of buying blazers, ties, shirts, shorts, pinafores, socks and, last but not least, shoes. 

Although Biscuit and Cracker love their play-around-in shoes, we have always bought their ‘proper’ shoes from Clarks. I had shoes from Clarks growing up and their tradition of proper fittings and quality have lasted. Biscuit and Cracker’s feet are now big enough for their new-fangled iPad fitting system too, how exciting!!! 

   

It’s only when they’re next to each other that you can see how big Cracker’s feet are compared to Biscuit’s!!!! 

   
Thank you for reading. Hope to see you again soon. Enjoy the sun and stay safe.
