Starting school

To Ellie

Tomorrow you're starting school. I just can't believe it. If I close my eyes I can still see so clearly the moment you were lifted up onto my chest after arriving in the world. It's like someone has a giant remote control and has held down the fast forward button. I can't actually believe that tomorrow you'll be making your first steps into a brand new chapter.

You're so excited and have been counting the sleeps for a week now. You've tried on your school uniform countless times and have been telling everyone that you meet that you're going to school. You're going to learn so much, you're ready for it and I can't wait for you to be able to write me notes and read to yours sisters.

Tomorrow I'll hold your hand as we walk through the playground and wait for the bell to ring. Then I'll give you a cuddle and a kiss and try not to cry. I'm hoping it's sunny enough to warrant wearing sunglasses. I'm excited for you but I'm really going to miss you. I'm so proud of you and all that you are. Remember all that we have taught you and you will be just fine, be kind, be gentle, be friendly, be thoughtful and most of all of be you. 

Have fun little one and good luck, I'll be right here if you need me. 

Love Mummy X
