You started school today.
After four and a half years being by my side – making me laugh, cry, marvel at your huge imagination and driven me up the wall with your non-stop questions and fearless tantrums, today marked the start of your new adventure.
Every milestone we’ve made together but today I wasn’t by your side.
In the lead up to d-day I was absolutely dreading it. I know you’re ready to take on this new chapter but I was so worried how you would adapt, if you’d be OK in your new environment, if you would ask for help if you needed it or explain your feelings if something didn’t feel quite right.
But when I saw you rushing out of your classroom at pick up time, I already knew you were going to be just fine.
It seems crazy to me that the little purple bundle who threw our world upside down with your sleepless arrival has suddenly taken her next independent steps into the big wide world – and I couldn’t be more proud of you.
I wonder where this education will take you. What you will become.
No matter where you end up in life, you will ALWAYS be my baby x
