I have been thinking a lot about my little man this week. He started afternoon kindy on Monday and it made me realise how quickly he is growing up :( I thought that he would easily settle into kindy as he is so friendly and easy going. I stayedwith him for the first session on Monday then yesterday I decided o leave him for the last hour and see how he went. I explained that I was going to pick up Sophie from school and would be back soon with her to pick him up. He could play at the kindy until I got back. He seemed OK with the idea and even happily hugged me goodbye. When I returned an hour later I found him curled up on a chair in the corner of the room crying. he flung himself on me sobbing 'I thought you had forgotten me mummy'. Well that just about broke my heart - although his kindy teacher said that he had been mostly happy whilst I was gone. I'm glad today is a public holiday here in NZ - we both need one I think!
Anyway, I took these photos a couple of days ago. I was just about to remove the dirt/food around his mouth on photoshop when I stopped - this is exacly what he looks like right now and why did I want to change that? The photo is perfect to me just the way it is. I love the challenge this month at 'White with one' - it is to scrap a page using only white and grey with tags or tabs. Now this is so far outside my comfort zone that I was intrigued to give it a go and I love the result. the greys really make the blue of his eye 'pop' and bring out the colour in the photos. I am hoping that the date card and journaling label count as 'tags'. I will definitely be trying this very neutral colour scheme again! - Oh and this is the first LO that I have done in ages with no ink splatters! I thought that the gorgeous MME woodgrain paper was interesting enough just as it was.
