The littlest one has gone off to kindy or 幼稚園 (youchien) this month.
He looked so small in his way-too-big uniform, with the shorts practically down to his ankles and his jacket looking more reminiscent of a dress than outerwear. I had my doubts about him going off to school because he seemed (and still seems) so babyish, but in true Mini-Ping fashion, he hopped on the bus with tentative smiles at the bus monitors and is wreathed in smiles on his return.
It's been strange having the house to myself during the time the Pinglet and Mini-Ping are both in school, and working during the daylight hours. I'm sure I'll get used to it in time, but for now, I'll enjoy missing my little ones and hoping that their days at school are happy ones.
