I don’t know how I’m going to have two children in full time school but for you my lovely, it’s your turn too! The summer has been lovely but hard work towards the end but despite this, I know I will miss you!
It’s silly as I always still see you as my baby, even though you have your baby brother! It’s like time should have stood still since I had you and really you’re still 3; developing your personality and turning into an amazing little girl!
But you’re not a baby and I see it more everyday. You will say something, pull a funny face or act a certain way and I’ll just know you are growing up! You’re almost 5 and so ready to start reception. It makes me sad that our days together at home are over but it’s been amazing having you at home for almost 5 years. I’ll miss making you a daily peanut butter sandwich, trips to the park and town. Playing, pottering and just having you with me. Your cuddles are the best and your laugh is so dirty and infectious. It will seem quiet with you gone all day. Just me and your brother twice a week.
I completely adore the fiesty, determined, opinionated little girl you have become. You don’t do anything you don’t want to. You don’t care what people think. You’re quirky and have abandoned anything society would class as remotely feminine in your clothes. You dress in such a cool way and I know you are going to smash it today. I was so relieved when your school allowed a gender neutral uniform for this year. It will allow you to be you; comfortable and happy and being the person you want to be.
You’re bright at school; doing well. I love the little friends you have from nursery and it makes me so happy you will be joining so many of them on your first day at school.
I know I have to let go a little if you. It makes me nervous sending you in as you have a little more reservations than your older sister. It takes you longer to warm up, chat and be comfortable in a new situation and with new people. I know it will take time but you will get there.
I love you so much my little darling. I love how you are so different to your sister. I know I will miss you so much but I can’t wait to hear about your first day!
