A Message for my Daughter, on Your First Day at School

The day has arrived. Today, my eldest daughter, Elliot, begins her new adventure at Big School. I wanted to write something poignant, so here is a little poem, written from one proud Mummy to her baby:


Treasure your baby, they told me,
for time will fly as she grows.
Remember her joyful smiles
Tiny fingers and wiggling toes.
Yes, I know, I told them,
I know they grow up so fast
And I have treasured and cherished our time together
We played, we learned, we laughed.

Now you begin a new journey
And I will be there at your side,
I will take you to school every morning
And bring you home every night,
Your friends will be with you
To share learning and laughter,
I will always treasure our precious time
My sweetheart, my Elliot, my daughter.
