There’s a little uniform (ooniform) laid out waiting for you downstairs. 

How can you be big enough to go to school?

You’re not a baby anymore, you haven’t been for a long time. I feel like your life has been just a lightning flash and we’re here. You’re so excited, beyond excited. You’re ready. You’re not scared or worried, you’re facing this challenge head on.

I’m proud of you. So so proud.

You came into the world early and faced hurdles in the first 72 hours of your life that had me scared and crying, you proved to the doctors that you were a little 4lb 1oz (well 3lb5 after you lost a lot of weight) fighter. You took your first breaths unaided and peed all over the travel incubator. You only had full oxygen for 24 hours, but you wouldn’t poop and that had everyone worried. Everytime you tell me you’ve done a poo I remember the time the nurses told me you’d finally done one. That feeling of relief.

From that day on you’ve grown stronger and stronger and tomorrow I have to let you go in to the big wide world and stand on your own; Not totally alone. Mama will always be here to turn to when you need me, even if it’s just for a little cuddle after a long day.

I hope you don’t lose the confidence that you have in yourself. I’ll do my best to help you keep it. And I hope that you learn so much, but always have questions for me.

I can’t believe you’re starting school… Mama will cry, but it’s because she’s proud and happy. 

It’s time. Love you little man. Xx
