Fast forward five and a half years and that heart on legs is about to head off to her first day of school.
I've found myself feeling quite a bit more emotional about this event than I thought I'd be and so last night after I'd finished labelling pencils and glue sticks (and shedding a tear or two), I had the thought to make her a little something to carry with her on her first day.
A little something that is soft and squidgy to put in her pocket. Just small enough to be able to dip her hand in and give it a little squeeze should she feel the need. *
Now to perhaps make one for myself ...
* Clearly this heart does not have "legs" as such. I did make some but they were kind of weird and got in the way of zippers and things.
