"A portrait of my daughter once a week, every week in 2015"

Lottie Cakes: This week you officially became a little girl in Kinder (preschool to most of the world, but Kindergarten in Victoria). We packed your backpack, jumped on a tram and I held your tiny hand as I dropped you off to a new chapter in life. You looked so big that morning, so grown, you spoke so clearly and sat on the tram bench like a girl ready to take on the world, without a care in it. You are still the youngest and smallest, being only 2 (for another week) starting 3 year old Kinder but you held your own as you always do and I knew you were ready. You yelled "I love you mom!" as I walked away and turned to your new friends and said"It's okay, she'll come get me later", which turned the tears in my throat to a giggle and I walked away after blowing you a smooch with a huge smile on my face. It doesn't seem Ill have to worry about you my fiery little lady, you're ready for anything!

  6. Looking very grown up and precious! I had a very hard time with the first day of preschool several years ago. I think it was harder for me than my children. Lovely words! #livingarrows
