How can it be?
You have just turned 3, and you are starting school tomorrow.
Two hours every day,
With lots of fun and play, you’re starting school tomorrow.
Your life changes again,
You’ll make lots of new friends because you are starting school tomorrow.
You don’t like change,
but it will be great once you’ve started school tomorrow.
You will settle in well,
Over time, I can tell, after starting school tomorrow.
I’ll smile and wave,
hiding my heart break when you start school tomorrow.
I will kiss and hug you,
laughing brightly with you when you start school tomorrow.
I will blow kisses good bye,
You will never know how I cried when you start school tomorrow.
My darling Ickle Pickle, you start school tomorrow – Monday 4 January. The next big step along the journey of your life. I am feeling everything it is possible to feel right now. Happiness, pride, excitement, nervousness, fear, apprehension, and so much more.
I am so happy that you are a beautiful, healthy, bright little boy, and obviously I want you to develop and flourish, and I know that school will help you do this. But a little part of me is grieving. Grieving that I will lose you for two hours every week day. We will have no more week day adventures of days out, but we will have mornings with each other and the weekends. We will have lots of fun and time together, and it will be extra special.
I wish you so much as you start your school journey. I hope you settle in, are confident, make new friends. I hope you enjoy it, and enjoy learning. You are going to have so much fun with new things such as sand and water play, a whole big table of PlayDo, the interactive white board, and trips to the woods and beach to explore. The even go if it is raining – you will love it!
