When Fainjin started school, I was a little worried about how Babess would handle being at daycare “by herself”.  I thought she might miss him and feel a bit lost without him around all the time.

Instead, she has blossomed, revelling in being one of the “big girls”, and growing in confidence.

But Fainjin misses her.  He doesn’t say so, and he doesn’t mope or perhaps even notice it during the day, but when she gets home, he greets her with wild excitement.  He can’t wait to tell her about his day, read her his book, give her a hug.  He draws pictures for her (hardly ever for me!) – and not of dinosaurs, either.  He draws princesses because he knows she likes them.

We were at the library the other day, and he asked if we could look for “a Rapunzel movie for Babess”.

He’s such a sweetheart!
