my little hero

clearly superheros are on ronnie’s mind this week, considering the turtle conversation and then the one we had this morning. on the way to school, it was very quiet in the car. something was clearly on ronnie’s mind. i could almost hear those cogs turning.

ronnie : mummy, am I a man?

HPMcQ : no ronnie not yet, when you grow up

ronnie : mummy, am I nearly a man?

time for change, time to move on

wow, so ronnie is nearly four. FOUR I SAY. which means he is a big boy, a big boy who is off to pre-school in just a little over three weeks time.

earlier in the week i had a moment when his school shoes arrived. today the moment was even bigger as we went to buy the rest of his uniform. his first school uniform. too cute for words. most of it is enormous, as age 4 clothes are huge on ronnie, (the shorts he is wearing today are age 1 1/2 – 2) he is a weeny chap. not so much in height but not an ounce of fat on him, just like his daddy, mr HPMcQ. he was fairly good in the school outfitters, a little overwhelmed by it all, as were we when we got our bill! they have aprons to eat their lunch so they don’t soil (god i love that word) their uniforms!

so the last 24 hours have been rather random. yesterday i was mostly in and out of being in the complete dark whilst trying to develop product for AW13. luckily i had been clever enough and packed a torch.
