First day at school

My boy is off to big school, my girl has one year left…I remember the day she started, I can hardly believe it was so long ago. To all  of you with little ones  starting school, I remember how it feels:


baby toddler darling child

always in my heart

want you near me by my side

apart apart apart

love you need you miss your smiles

dreaded terms start

watch the hands crawl round the dial

my heart my heart my  heart

It goes so quickly, enjoy every minute.

    Oh, Kathy, it made me cry, too, and Mary had tears in her eyes!! Esme thinks Archie looks great in his uniform. The girls are back tomorrow and I know I will feel bereft, as usual, for at least two weeks, especially with Esme starting “big” school. Keep smiling all of you who feel the same :o) x
