My little girl has grown up and has started pre-school this year. Julia (Miss 4) is so happy to be there that she hardly gave me a second glance as she walked in the door.
I've enjoyed her baby stage and her toddler stage and I'm really looking forward to this pre-school year because she is going to learn so much and have so much fun while doing it. I love watching her grow up and develop new skills and friendships, and experience so many new things.
We were talking about school a short while ago and had a memorable conversation that strikes me as one of those beautiful simplistic views of the world as seen by a 4-year-old.
Julia: "I'm looking forward to high school!"
Me: "You've got a while to go yet - first you go to pre-school, then primary school, then high school and then university".
Julia: "What do you do at university?"
Me: "You can learn how to be lots of things, like a teacher or an accountant".
Julia: "What does an accountant do?"
Me: "Works with numbers".
Julia: "Oh, like The Count - you know Mum, from Sesame Street".
