Letting go is hard. You may be our third born daughter but these milestone moments never feel any less important to us. Today is a big one for you – your first residential school trip. You are so excited and we for you too. You shall have the most amazing time, we’re sure of that.
Letting go, as a parent, to the strings that bind you to your children is one of the hardest things to do. Today Delilah heads off on her first school residential trip and she is so excited about it. We’re excited for her too, but at the same time, this is a big string to cut.
I was on school drop of duty today and I have to say I made it a long goodbye. I held her that little bit tighter, kept the cuddle going that little bit longer and was pleased to be wearing my sunglasses as I had tears too. Not that I am ashamed of shedding those tears at all, they were happy tears, but I didn’t want her to think they were anything else at all.
So off she goes for a few days of adventure and excitement. She will have a fabulous time with her friends and come home with plenty of washing for us to do. I can’t wait to hear all about it.
