Where has the time gone, you turned 5 at the end of July and now you have returned back to school for the start of year 1. The last year has gone by so very quickly and I remember feeling sick as you started in the foundation stage at school, and this past week I have felt exactly the same emotions.
|Waiting to start her first day of Year 1|
I know that you are were so excited to return to school, and I have no doubt you will be fine and have lots of fun, however as your mummy I am finding it hard to accept that you don't need me as much as you once did and I almost feel I'm losing my little girl. I know you will always be my daughter and I your mummy, but I want to keep you my little girl for just a little bit longer. I want to be able to wrap you up and cuddle you like when you were a newborn.
Ruby I am so incredibly proud of you and everything that you do, you really do bring so much happiness to my life, more so than what you would ever realise.
I hope you continue to enjoy your time at school this year and it's filled with lots of fun and laughter, and as little homework as possible! As your mummy I know it's important to help you learn, but you are also a child and need a childhood filled with lots of fun and enjoyable times too.
Please stop growing up Ruby and be my little girl. I miss you each and every day you're at school and I look forward to the weekends.
Lots of love
