Journalling reads: You and Daddy wanted to go out together without me. I wasn’t really sure what you wanted to do, so I handed you the camera and told you both to have a good time. I thought maybe you would both go to the park, perhaps you would feed the ducks and I would end up getting some cute photos of you playing. But what did the two of you bring me photos of? Well there were some photos of you sitting on the bus, a construction site that you had seen out of the window and these photos of you enjoying a happy meal in Mcdonalds. I can’t believe that the best thing you could think of to do without me was go for a happy meal!

Journalling reads: Do you remember when Mummy took this photo, because Mummy does. It was during yet another one of those truly horrible school mornings, where I was trying to fight you out of your bed after you had refused to go to sleep the night before. There were a lot of these mornings where tempers were quick to lose and tears just as quick to flow. I remember taking these photos with the intention of being able to show you that this was not the way things were meant to be every single day. It was not a nice time for anyone, I’m so glad that things have changed and for the most part you now go to bed when I tell you!

Journalling reads: After a disagreement with Conor I felt like I needed to escape the house for a little while. I decided that even though I was hurting and feeling ill, it would be a good idea to go to the park. Park’s have always been a bit special to me that’s usually always wherever I tend to head when I am feeling depressed. I knew that you would cry if I just left, you don’t even like it when I go to the toilet and leave you in the bedroom! I don’t like making you sad so I took you with me. Lukas didn’t want to come, so it was just the two of us. Rather than go too far I just took you to the park around the corner. You were a little confused about what was going on but you were also excited. When we got to the park, you were squealing with delight. Most of the park has been vandalized, there aren’t any swings any more. So I pushed the pushchair around for you to play with one of the few things remaining, the coloured abacus balls. I unstrapped you and you had fun standing on your pushchair playing while I took photos. You had a great time. It wasn’t long before I was feeling calm enough to go home again. You were starting to get tired and I was worried about you being cold in your little summer suit. I wrapped you up and we headed home. I’m so glad we got this chance to spend some time together and turn a really negative situation into something positive and fun. I guess sometimes a little space is all that’s needed. Photos taken 22nd June 2010.

Journalling reads: that there’s somebody in this house, who is very excited today. Bet the little birdie doesn’t know why you are so excited, but I do! Today is your last day in foundation. In September you are going to be in year one and you are really looking forward to it. You are so proud of the fact that you will get to play on the big playground. You are excited because Ella will be in the class you are in now. You are thrilled that you will be having a new teacher. More than anything else though you can’t wait for the school holidays to start. I know something else the birdie doesn’t know. I know that you are a little bit scared of everything changing, you don’t really like change very much. But you will be fine once you get used to it. I’ll let you in on a secret though, promise you won’t tell it to anyone. I am a little sad today, you seem to be growing up so quickly. I can’t believe you are ready to start year 1, at least we have 7 weeks to get used to it!
