The Next Step – secondary school

Posted By on Aug 30, 2013 |


So my baby boy child has gone to his first day at secondary school… I am so pleased for him as he is so excited to go which is fantastic and way better than him not wanting to go… BUT I miss him! :( it seems such a mile stone, strangely enough more of a mile stone than when he started primary school – maybe I just don’t remember how I felt at that time… but I seem to remember not being able to wait for him to start… I seem to remember being gutted that he couldn’t stay for lunch or even all day! And now I wish he was coming home for lunch!  I guess some of it is the realisation at how quickly time goes by… and before I know it he will be heading to Uni or College or just leaving home for a job somewhere… Its not that I don’t like progress actually quite the reverse I love watching him grow up and change and all the different conversation we have and see him developing into a teenager and a young adult…

I have just picked him up and he is sooooo happy and full of what he did,  “oh wow” and “oh yeah, and we did this and this and then that”, and it just makes my heart sing… and soar…
