The Middle does the Middle Years

This little pocket rocket sallied forth into the big world of a new school and fitted in like she'd been there for a lifetime. She grinned as she came out on her first day - relief making her eyes bright.
"Mum, I've had such a good day" she exclaimed as we walked hand in hand back over the school fields, "it's so surprising!".
She had watched her older sister for a few days, watched her melt into a puddle of tears on both her departure and arrival and assumed naturally this was the pattern to expect. What a delight it was after last year's misery to actually discover, quite accidentally, that she is in for fun and belonging.
Sadly the youngest does not share anyone's enthusiasm, she feels quite rotten about it all and is not afraid to show it. She has found a backpack (which she calls her handbag) and most mornings tells me earnestly that she is ready for school too. She erupts into wails of woe as the family all go their own ways and she is left, saddled with me. :)
