It’s happened!!! The day you think about from the day they are born but never really think will come, my biggest princess has now started school EEEK!
The past few week’s have been a mixture of emotions for me I am used to her going off in her little uniform each morning because last year she was at the schools nursery but knowing now that I can’t just take her out for the day to go to peppa pig world or where ever we fancy is a strange feeling. That’s it now she has so be in school come rain or shine everyday (minus the holidays) until she’s 18 it’s such a scary thought.
Yesterday wasn’t really an emotional day for us, she was so happy and so excited to be in her big girls class room and see all of her friends how could it be. She’d been counting down the days and was dressed and ready a full half hour before we were due to leave, I haven’t seen her so excited for a long time.
I feel a bit guilty for not getting overly emotional about her going off to ‘big school’ you hear of these parent’s in floods of tears but her cheeky little smile was infectious she skipped on in and settled down straight away.
It was only a half day so 3 hours later out she ran on out with a sticker for helping to do ‘beautiful tidying’ in her words – if only it was the same at home. We all headed straight to the beach from school for a picnic and ice-cream as a special treat and Maisy told me all about her day, drawing a picture for her peg and playing football where she scored 31 goals (possibly a slight exaggeration on that one). She had a great day and couldn’t wait to go back again this morning.
My little girl is all grown up it doesn’t seem possible that this was her almost 4 years ago to the day same pretty smile though.
When Maisy was born I didn’t realise I could love something so much she has taught me so much over the years but now it’s her turn to do the learning I will miss her being at home with me but it’s her time, she’s so ready and I can’t wait to watch her blossom – love you so much my beautiful, clever grown up girly.
