Today marks a first for a few things for me. In fact, the past few weeks many things were a first.
For the first time today, my princess flew away from the nest with strangers. Well, not totally strangers strangers, but strangers nevertheless. She went for a school trip with her friends and 'teachers'. Without me. Even just before she boarded the bus she kindly reminded me, "Mama, you are not going to the castle with me ok? I am going with teachers and friends. See you later. Bye!"
Qistina used to be 'cling-wrapper'y and would not go anywhere without me (or her papa). Even when i initially asked her whether she wanted to join the trip, she flatly refused. A different story altogether this morning. A fairy princess she was today, with pink glittery wings and pretty little star wand in hand.
Talking about being sentimental about it..
I am glad that she has found her sense of independence. I am also glad to be able to see her go without tears streaming down her eyes. Or my eyes for that matter.
A first also for Rayyan, to be left alone with me. He gladly waved goodbye to Qistina and said, "See you later Kakak!". Such a good sport Adik. These two are inseparable (without tears that is), but today it is all smiles.
She came back exhausted but entirely happy, and could not stop chatting about it!
On another note, it has been two months since that fateful day and i am loving every second of it. Simply precious and would not do it any other way. Na'aa. Nope. Naheeen.
Hence i should have more time to update this long abandoned blog. Haha..
