Young boys should never be sent to bed

Hubs being like any typical guy doesn’t often get emotional over touchy-feely moments. So I was surprised to see him emerge from Nathan’s bedroom moist-eyed after putting him to bed the first night after we arrived back from KL. I guess he was feeling a little more nostalgic with his sister being married off and being with his family and all.

He told me that as he sat there humming Nathan’s bedtime lullaby, it suddenly hit him how fast Nathan was growing up. He experienced an almost a piercing sadness and pain realising how fleeting the years are. In a blink of an eye, before we even have time to realise it, he’ll be all grown up.

"Young boys should never be sent to bed...
they always wake up a day older,
and then before you know it,
they're grown"
(J.M. Barrie, ‘Finding Neverland’)

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.
