    Default Two children left today - my first leavers

    A milestone for me - 2 sisters left me today. I have only had them since the beginning of June, so 3 months.

    One is starting school in Sept and mum is giving up work.

    Mum just gave me a box of chocs and a bottle of wine! How nice. Does everyone usually get pressies when the children leave? I was well surprised!!!

    Pity I don't like wine though. But I like chocs. ha

    I took lots of photos of my leavers, got them to make me some pictures to remember them by.

    They told their mum that they wanted to come back tomorrow as well. Bless!

    My first leavers! I didn't cry either.

    Well done on the tears

    I think it is always sad when they leave but we are just "borrowed"

    Good luck on replacing them

    I thought they were sweet little things but I only saw them for a few hours the other day lol. Yes, always get a reference!!!!!! I always got cards and presents when mine left over the years, I'll show you them when you come down next. It's very upsetting when you've had them a long time and are very close to them but I'm still in touch with a lot of mine, they were babies when I had them and they are anything upto 20 now.

    I sort of had a leaver today too! i'll still be doing before and after school on occasional days, and even then after school is only for 30 mins.

    I took her to the park, then to mcdonalds (first time in the 2 years i've had her, and I got permission from Dad) then took her to woolies to choose a present.

    Nice of your parents to get you a pressy - enjoy!!

    I had my first leaver today too. He had been with me since May. I didn't ask mum for a reference as it was me that terminated, should I have still asked for one?

    I didn't cry either, it was just like any other day. He is two and didn't really understand though I think he will when he starts with his new CM next week.

    I had one leave today after being with me full time for the last 8 years since he was 8 months old, they're moving away. It was so sad, I cried, he cried, Mum cried, plans were made for him to visit very soon, we exchanged a bagful of presents and she has written me a fantastic reference.
