To my baby boy on the night before you start school
I can not believe this time has come already. You are only 4 and I am letting you out into the big wide world. Where has the time gone where you were a new born snuggled into my arms, a toddler taking your first stumbling steps or a Pre Schooler chatting away constantly. How I now wish I had savoured each and every moment. I have so many beautiful memories tucked away in my heart but how I wish I could make more.
Tomorrow I will wave you into school with a sadness in my heart but also a flutter of excitement. An excitement for your new adventure, the new memories you will make, the new adventures and new friends. I will send you off knowing that your big brother and sister will be close by and a team of loving, dedicated teachers that we have grown to know and love since your sister started 5 years ago.
As I tuck you into bed tonight it is with a heavy heart that you will never totally be mine again. My beautiful boy starting his own new adventure. But I will always be here when you need me. I will always be by your side and I will always be in your corner. No love compares to that of a Mummy’s.
Go start your adventure baby boy, have fun and enjoy every moment! Mummy will be waiting eagerly for you and I can’t wait to hear all about it.
I love you with all my heart, now and forever.
