Ella has been hounding us for her to do ballet for quite a while now, "not dancing Mummy, ballet" so after much whinging and needling she started last week and so far has loved both of the lessons she's had which is particularly good considering the first lesson she had was with girls about 2-3 years older than her. The teacher must of miss heard her age when I told her and told me the wrong group for her age so we followed her directions on the first day and went to the room she told us.
So in the first of new things for the Fletcher family this year, Ella and Hudson started Childcare last week which they both loved and had a really great time at. They were both so excited to be going and loved their new bags and drink bottles etc which just added to the excitement. I was quite apprehensive particularly about Hudson and his feelings about being left at the centre but he was fine, I think having Ella there was definitely a security blanket for him which helped a lot. He has had his moments but has been able to pop next door whenever he wants to check in with Ella and has even had sleeps at the centre without a bottle!!!! a huge thing for my bottle loving boy. I was so proud of how brave he was and how he has adapted to the change of going to childcare.
Ella on the other hand couldn't wait for me to leave, she is SO ready for some extra stimulation and has loved every minute of her time there. She has not blinked an eyelid about being left and has taken the whole change in her stride, just been extremely excited about the everything.
So here they are on their first day ready to go and looking so grown up.
