"NO! You just get soap in your eyes and get big sore bones!"
*Ouch* How do you argue that though? I mean, it felt like I had soap in my eyes at that moment, and I was still trying to drive. I can only imagine the second part of her declaration had to do with a discussion regarding growing and how it sometimes hurts, but that was months ago. I guess another reminder of be careful what you say.
The time has come to say goodbye,
We'll try so hard not to cry,
We'll miss your funny little ways,
And all our fun and crazy days.
Getting messy, paint and glue,
Sticking, colouring and collage too.
Making friends, time together,
Memories that will last forever.
We've watched you grow, and come so far,
You'll always be a shining star.
Learning together each new day,
A brand new skill that will always stay.
Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring,
A brand new season, what will it bring?
Time outside, rain and sun,
So much fun for everyone.
Riding bikes, climbing and sliding,
Running, jumping or a game of hiding.
So now we have to be apart,
But you'll always be inside our heart.
Everyone will miss you so,
And always remember wherever you go,
That you are special and quite unique,
In the way you move and the words you speak.
A last goodbye and last squeeze,
Never ever forget us please.
Poem by Katie Whitnell
Thanks so much to all the Busy Bees Staff, especially Emma, Katie, & Carly and the others who fill in at Starburst since this is about Rian. Trusting someone with your children is not always easy, but you ALL do an amazing job, and we "transplants" are lucky to have found you!
