"School bag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning, waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile........"
Off to secondary school looking gorgeous!
I've been teasing her all summer about the "Slipping through my fingers" song from the Mamma Mia film - but that is just a cover for what a big step this is for her - and for me. There is a real truth in the song lyrics that struck home when I watched the film.
My little girl is growing up and there really is that "feeling that I'm losing her forever, and without really entering her world"
Sentimental slush, I know!
The other problem is that I'm monumentally jealous of her starting a new school with all the amazing things she is going to learn and all the new and exciting experiences (along with some of the more scary ones no doubt - not so envious of them)
Come back later for a jollier post about all the lovely presents I got for my birthday!
