I am there when they eat their breakfast, dinner and tea.
I am there when they fall over.
I pick them up and hug them and put the Mr Happy bump cooler on invisible bruises.
I share their excitement the first time I use the pedals on the bike, the first time they use the slide by themselves, the first time they conquer the stepping stones.
I plant flowers with them and share the experience of watching them grow.
I dance with them and sing with them.
I put them to sleep. I wake them up.
I cuddle them while they’re sleepy and grumpy before and after sleep.
I have qualifications in child development, first aid, safeguarding.
In my spare time I look for new ways, different ways to engage your child in order to further their development.
And when they are five, they will go to school and forget me.
