It breaks my heart every time I leave her at home. It breaks my heart even more when I wake her up in the morning to get her ready for nursery before I myself rush off to work and to hear her say ‘Mama don’t go to work’.
I took the day off yesterday as Little Bee asked me to. We didn’t do much apart from playing board games and had a picnic in the front room… but it was worth taking the day off from work.
And today she wants me to stay again… even though she knows I can’t.
I’ve been leaving her to go to work since she was seven months. She’s four years old now and it’s not getting any easier.
