Today my second child and daughter graduates from primary school. They have had a special lunch, a school assembly, tonight will be a mass followed by dinner and then they all head off on an outing tomorrow full of fun and laughs.
I am emotional – having cried already this morning thinking about my daughters final moments at primary school. I feel like it is a time when I need to loosen the strings and let her venture into the ‘real’ world. It’s the letting go that is breaking my heart. I know as they get a little older and head into teenage years, their ties to home are not as important. Friends and boyfriends and socialising take priority and this is something I am going to have to get use to.
My daughter needs to leave primary school and begin to live her new ‘grown up life’ but it doesn’t make it any easier. I am ready with my camera and a box of tissues…
Love you with my everything – and just a little more. xxx
