The excitement, the realization, all bubbled over this morning. 12 times you asked me ‘am I really in grade one now mummy’. That was just before breakfast. It was as if you had surprised yourself by growing up overnight. You love school. You have a passion for learning. Of course there are the friends that you have missed over the holidays even tho some are not joining your class this year. You were happy. Proud. And so you should be, I know I was.
