Dear Blake on the eve of you starting School

Dear Blake 

It doesn't feel that long ago since writing about your birth. It's strange to think that back then I thought we had plenty of time before you would go to school. I was wrong as the time has just flown by. 

The years have just disappeared and even when you went to preschool it didn't prepare me for how I would feel about you being in school. I have a feeling when I see you looking so grown up tomorrow in your uniform it's not just going to be you crying as you go in. 

I guess we are lucky that school is being supportive of your needs and building up your hours slowly ready for you to be in full time 9 til 3:30. This will hopefully help me to adjust to it as well. 

I hope that you have a much more better school life than I did. I hope you manage to make friends easily as well as do well academically as you can. All that matters is that you try your hardest in all that you do over the next 12 years or however long you end up in education.

I hope that you turn to me with any struggles you may face and know I will always be there for you. Now it's time for me to let you go and start this new journey.
