As they stepped into the second grade.


She said;

‘Don’t do my hair like that. It makes me look like a baby


‘I haven’t grown enough to be taller than the kindy kids and everyone will tease me for being small still’


‘I don’t want to be in a new class, with new kids who are just going to stare at me all day’


‘what if the new teacher doesn’t know that I get sick, what happens then’

and when the tears started to fall,

after she had released all of that pent up stress, she said the truest thing of all;

‘I’m just nervous, I guess’.


He said;

‘Don’t worry Ivy. Whatever happens I’ll be there to look after you’

and he was

and the morning went just fine

especially when their names were called

to find they were going to be with their most favourite teacher of all

as they stepped into the second grade.

The girl’s eyes relaxed and a small hint of a smile skirted across her face

and Noah,


he might have fist pumped the air.

    Your children are a credit to the way they have been brought up and you have so many reasons to be proud of them each and every day. Memories flooded back for me while i read this this evening; my school days, those of my daughter, the children I have nannied and loved beyond words, and those i haven’t met yet who will fill my arms, my home, and my heart with their individual selves.

    Thank you for sharing your lives with us; I learn something nearly every time you write a new post.

    Oh my goodness….I have read your blog for years but have to comment on this one. That picture is priceless! I just love it. You do a great job of Mothering and I am sorry it has taken me so long to come and say that! I love how Noah is such a great big brother and that comes from good parenting. You and Hubby keep up the good work.

  • Becka:

    Dayum…this made me tear up and for all the right reasons Tiff. So glad your precious pair have had such a good start to the year. Just the fact that big girl Ivy is well enough to start with her brother is a fabulous effort :)
