Emmy started school today, it was her first day in reception – full time school. BIG SCHOOL!
I have to admit I was very sad today, emotions were running high for us both. My little sidekick has done everything with me from the start – when I went back to work 12 weeks after she was born she came with me. I have spent 4 nights away from her in 4 and a half years – we do everything together, she is my best friend.
It does seem like only yesterday I lay awake all night in the hospital after she was born, absolutely shattered after a 36 hour labour and an emergency section, dead on my feet however I was unable to sleep, unable to take my eyes of my beautiful princess. I lay awake all night just watching her and holding her tight.
I really wish I could bottle those days, looking back on pictures just isn’t the same.
When you are told to cherish those early days you really should!
From this tiny helpless bundle who needed my all the time to my independent big girl heading off to big school today, worried, scared, nervous yet excited and proud at the same time.
I really wish I could time, it’s going too fast. Of course that just isn’t possible however she will never be too big for Mummy cuddles and I will always be here for her every single day. Starting each day with a kiss and a cuddle and ending the day in the same way.
This video from Fairy captures just how quickly they do go grow up and makes you realise just how much you should cherish those super soft cuddles – be warned I welled up when I watched this for the first time, I could envisage Emmy growing though those stages and I’m just not ready to admit she is growing up.
