Today you started Primary School. This is such a big milestone in your life! I couldn’t help thinking how small you looked when you put on your uniform! This wasn’t helped by the fact that your age 4 pinafore dress looked so big on you!


You must have been keen to go to school as you awoke at 4am. Luckily you went back to sleep for 2 hours, otherwise I am not sure you would have made it through the day.

Before we left the house you kept saying how much you would miss me. I will miss you too baby girl, more than you’ll ever know, but I know you will have a wonderful time!


You are more than ready for school. You loved it when you visited before the summer holidays and I know you will love it even more now.


As we walked to school you held your head high! You told me how you were going to be very good and how you were going to listen when you were being read a story.

We were the first ones there (apart from the breakfast club) so we sat on the bench and watched as the teachers and children set up the outdoor area. You seemed a little nervous and even smaller than you did at home. I talked about how much fun you were going to have to try to put you at ease.

Then a friend that you had made on your visits, who is now in year 1, called you over to the fence. She was setting up the toys when she spotted you. She was pleased to see you and you both stood talking for a while. This seemed to help your confidence and as your other little friends arrived you went over to say hello.

When the teacher opened the gate my heart sank but 2 minutes later it burst with pride as you went up to Mrs. Wright and gave her a hug. I knew from that moment you would be absolutely fine.


We went to find your coat peg and we worked out where to put your book bag and your water bottle. You then went to write your name on the white board without any prompting from anyone.

I gave you a big kiss and a hug and then watched you go off to play. As I walked away from the school I had a huge lump in my throat! When did my baby girl get so grown up?


I hope your time at Primary School is a wonderful one! I want you to live, laugh and learn and make some beautiful friends! I know I won’t be there for every cut, graze or bump anymore and I won’t be the only one wiping away your tears but I will be waiting for you at the end of each day and looking forward to hearing about all of your adventures!


Dream big baby girl!
