The first day of school is a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for mum. I thought I would be fine. I thought I would be able to stop those tears from filling my eyes. I thought wrong. As soon as the principal started to talk about their buddies and how we find them, the tears came. Keely was at my feet completely happy and excited for her first day. She did not see her mum turn to a puddle.
One word sums it up for me, and that is, proud. I don't think I have ever been more proud of her than today. Keely smiled from the moment she woke up this morning until the moment I kissed her goodnight as she went with her father late this afternoon. There is no doubt she will be a great student. Any child that loves to step into those shiny black shoes will do great things with their lives. And if she wears that smile and is happy, she could do anything for her mum to be proud.
Rock on Keely! x
