To my dearest Sophie Grace,
It seems like only yesterday that I met your chubby little face for the first time, and we went from being a couple to a little family.
And now here we are, in just a matter of weeks, you’ll be starting big school.
BIG SCHOOL! I still can’t quite believe it.
Each night as I tip toe down the hall and check on everyone before I go to bed, I kiss your gorgeous little face, still so young and innocent and realise we’re another day closer to your big first day.
I know that you are more than ready to embark on this next exciting chapter of your little life.
So many new things to learn, so many new people to meet, and so many new friends to make.
You really are going to LOVE school! I can just feel it in my bones.
And so here we are, with just one more week of preschool left.
I’ll never forget your first day. This wide eyed gorgeous kid, with curly locks and beautiful little round face.
You started to cry, and Nadine scooped you up for a hug. I held it together, held it together, held it together, reached the gate, and burst into tears.
I cried the whole way home, and spent the day counting down the hours, minutes, until it was time to collect you!
It’s hard to believe that was nearly 3 years ago.
I am so proud of the sweet, kind, funny and all round spectacular little human being that you are growing into.
And I’m so proud to be your mum.
So go get ‘em Soph. What an exciting new chapter we’re all about to begin.
I love you.
