Izzie started school today and we all managed to get through it without any tears - hooray! As Izzie LOVES to rhyme I wrote this for her. Another example of my very bad but love-filled poetry!
The day has come, it’s finally here,
The wait is over, the school gate is near.
Over-sized uniform, navy blue,
Looking so grown up, is it really you?
Almost five, a baby no more,
Excited yet anxious, we open the door,
Book bag in hand, we step in together,
Side by side, a moment to treasure.
A quick kiss and a cuddle as we say goodbye.
I quickly head home and try not to cry.
For I could not be prouder of you,
All that you are and all that you do.
Independent. Determined. A right chatterbox.
My little genius in knee-high white socks.
I love you sweetie more than you’ll ever know,
But it’s your first day at school so off you must go.

Aw thanks Mum :)Delete
Oh starting school is such an emotional time - I had my first day at school last year. This is a lovely poem, emotion captured and evoking memories. I hope she has a good week next week, and you didn't cry too much (I did and mine is now in Year 1!!)ReplyDelete
Hope your little one is enjoying year one :) Izzie is getting on brilliantly but very tired!!Delete
