My Baby Girl's All Grown Up

Well that was harder than I thought, I honestly thought it wasn't going to be that emotional for me - seeing Willow off to her very first day at school, after all, I've been through it all before with Scott 5 years ago. But I was wrong, my stomach has been in a complete uproar all day and by the time we got to school I felt physically sick. Graham wasn't faring any better either - but I expected this to be harder for him as Willow's his oldest. (in case you're confused, Scott is my child from my previous marriage).

Willow has been high as a kite all day, so I think it would have been easier to nail jelly to wall than dressing her lol. And boy does she look grown up in her school uniform, and she kept raving about how lovely her uniform was, how fab her shoes are and how she loves being all grown up.

So off we went in the car, and joined all the other mums and dads in the playground, managed to find Scott so we could get some pics of all 3 of them together. And before we knew what was happening the kids were all lined up ready to go in, their teacher Mrs Willox lead them all in and that was it - all over!! I must admit to being a little teary eyed - but have talked myself into believing its because Faith was upset because she couldn't go with Willow lol

Willow, at the front of the queue, all lined up and ready to go..

And off she went...

Oh Willow looks adorable! Trust me after seeing 4 kids off on their first day at school it doesn't get easier ;-) then it starts all over again when they start secondary school!

Hope she had fun on her first day ;-)
