This morning I woke feeling anxious inside.
Nervous, excited, and fizzing with pride.
Your “Frozen” bag’s packed and you’re ready to play.
You’re starting your preschool adventure today!
We’ve found the right place and I know that it’s time.
You’re ready for more so I know you’ll be fine.
You’ll play with the first toys that we haven’t bought.
Learn new information that we haven’t taught.
Make new little friendships and chose your own chums,
No longer the children of friends of your mum’s.
And I know without doubt as we get to the door,
That you’ll gallop inside on a quest to explore.
You won’t turn your head just to check I’m still there.
You’ll happily run off and play without care.
I’m handing the reigns now to somebody new,
And trusting they’ll be there to take care of you.
I know that they’ll tell me how you spend your days.
And I’ll tell them a bit about your little ways:
That lunch shall be given a cursory look,
That you’ll wrinkle your nose and declare that it’s “Yuk!”
That your play time agenda might not meet their own.
So they might see the odd little tantrum get thrown.
And that if you just happen to say “little bugger”
It’s just a mistake and you mean to say “brother”. *Straight face*
But you’ll share and be loving and caring and kind.
You’re eager to learn and you know your own mind.
You’re happy and cute and you’re funny and smart.
With gorgeous brown eyes and a beautiful heart.
It’s true what they say as the time’s simply flown,
From a tiny pink newborn you’ve so quickly grown.
For three years we’ve watched you become who you are,
You’re our little monster and our little star.
No longer my baby you’re now moving on,
For a few hours a week my Miss Tot will be gone.
You’ll learn and you’ll grow, you’ll develop and play.
But you’ll always be ours at the end of the day.
I’ll cherish each time I can say I’m your mum.
I’m so proud of the beautiful girl you’ve become.
And I’ll watch you run in but I won’t shed a tear.
As I know that you know, that I’m always right here.
Linking up with…
