Best Friends Forever

I thought that my son is adjusting well in his new big school. He is always happy and smiling every time I pick him up and always happy on our walks to school. This morning though some hints are dropped unintentionally of course that he is missing his friends and teachers in preschool. He saw his album from his old school and he started asking if he can go back to his old preschool. I just shrugged it off thinking he was just reminded of them cuz of the notes. His new school in near his old preschool and I told him that I saw his friends from there. He literally run when I told him that we can probably still catch them if we walk fast. We did see them and he is really happy. There is a bit of a distance with them (him and his classmate) already but I think thats its just the environment being the sidewalk. Given a chance for them to meet in say a playground they would probably go back into their close selves. They are both tired too of course.

We then went to another place and his friend and mom proceed to theirs and my son started crying saying he wants to follow them. I pacified him by telling him that we will text his friend's mom. So we went home and we texted them and he is telling me to text them for a meet up. I just texted them saying my son misses their daughter. When I told my son that they cant meet us up he started crying non stop. Saying how he is not happy.

Took me while to make him stop crying.

When his father came home fromwork we decided to bring him to the playground to console him. My heart is breaking that my son experience cant be with his friends (as classmates) anymore. They will move on and he needs to move on as well. But he is a kid and I dont know how to explain that. What I can do is to be with him while he is mending his young broken heart.

Here are our photos of our trip earlier. Nice weather to be out. Still warm and yet the colors are staring to change.

Him excited to go to the playground.

Daddy helping him in the circular swing as he is dizzyish

Son wibbling wabbling cuz of that ride.

Zip line is more fun when you have someone to share it with!

Half term should be the time for the little one to enjoy the outside world right. Which is sad as my son is sick since Wednesday. SInce we are just inside the house and I think he is beginning to feel cabin fever he asked his Dad if we can go out even for a few minutes. Even if my husband needs to work he gave in as my son is really really sluggish and he reckon some fresh air and rain would help him recover.

We went to a lake with few ducks. Just us and its so peaceful. He wont go down but I can finally see a wee bit of smile from him which I havent seen the whole day. Amazing what the outdoors could really do. Sadly it started to rain and we need to go home because David my husband needs to go to work. He promised tho that the next day we will go out again for a wee bit longer.

Fast forward to today!

He feels a wee bit better and his perkiness pick up in the afternoon. A bit of Calpol probably helped as well. So when his Dad arrived we went out as promised. We went here to play and so that David can do some geocaching too.

I dont know what happened cuz he suddenly just went from gloomy to sunny! He saw the playground and suddenly the fever is gone! And he is climbing those ropes like a pro. Husband did a bit of geocaching while we stayed in the playground for some more playtime. Sadly he didnt find the item he is looking for which is in away nice cuz then we need to go back soon!

Amazing what outdoors can do to a kid. He is still sick when we went home but not as much as the last days and I am thankful for that. Hopefully we will get to enjoy whats left of the half term. We dont have plans but I know we will go out again. Because who needs nature heals!
