Following on from yesterday's post, my heart is full with my eldest boy right now.
These photos were taken on his birthday, loving himself sick with his new bike.
He had his first play date this Wednesday gone - as in a proper, another mum picked him up from kinder, I wasn't there playdate. All by himself.
I told him he should listen to his little friend's mum, I told him to ask where the toilet was, I told him to have a great time.
He was so excited.
Having Luca gone all day should have meant I had a little more freedom to get stuff done but instead I found myself at a loss, distracted by thoughts of him, wondering if he was okay.
Later that evening, after he had returned home and gone to bed happily exhausted, my phone vibrated with this message;
Luca is a lovely lil fella & he is welcome here any time.
I am proud to be his mother.
