Starting School – When Did You Get So Big?
When did you get so big Little Man, tomorrow you start school.
Sitting here with tears in my eyes, I feel a bit of a fool.
Your bag is packed, your clothes are labelled and your shoes are super shiny,
But there is massive part of me that says ‘don’t take him yet, he’s still tiny.’
Nursery was your first big leap and then Preschool too.
You’ve taken it all in your stride and this you will do too.
I don’t know where the years have gone but I do know we’ve had fun,
I think this is the perfect time to say, I’m proud of you son.
Will you remember all the things I’ve taught you to get you to this stage?
For you this is exciting, for me it’s slightly frightening this brand new page.
So tears and sadness aside I really can’t wait to see you grow more,
And I know we both can’t wait to see what this new journey has in store.
So one last day, lets make it count and then you’ll be part of the school crowd.
I love you Little Man, go show them what you got; I know you’ll make me proud.
When did you get so big?
