The last day, ever ..


Today was the last day for Maya at creche.  It ends our 16 years at the centre where we are their longest serving family.  I was a young mum aged 22 when Ayden started and now I'm a 38 year old,  older mum as Maya finishes.

Long term readers will know how much we appreciate this centre.  It's small, personal and every child is happy to be there.  So lucky.  There were tears this morning when we said goodbye and Maya handed over our flowers and card.  Not from Maya though,  she is excited to be going off to school next year like her brothers.


For each of the carers in Maya's room I made a little gift bag.  Stitcheries were designed by Bronwyn Hayes and Lynette Anderson.  Just the right size for a box of chocolates xx

It's a rare thing to find a center that's still all about the kids and their families .... not just about the $$.
We're finishing at our wonderful center tomorrow.
I'm sure there'll be tears from me too.
Beautiful gifts!!!
Andi :-)

I'm impressed that your big girl didn't cry, Rachel, did you?? What a wonderful place that creche must be; so special to you and your family and I'm sure you all have a special place in the hearts of the staff too. Merry Christmas.
