Parenting Random Ramblings

One Proud Mummy

It’s actually happened. My little girl has now left pre-school, and primary school is beckoning her. I wrote recently about how I feel about it, and not much has changed, to be honest. But her readiness for school, her enthusiasm for it all to begin, that keeps me smiling and keeps me proud.

It was her Leaver’s Assembly on Friday afternoon. The Husband managed to get the afternoon off work, and my mum came and watched Little Man, so that we could go along and watch our daughter perform. And perform she did, dancing the Tango (don’t ask – it was somewhat random, what with the footballers, the strong men and the ballerinas!). She made us so proud. She’s been practising the dance for weeks now, and took her rehearsals very seriously. Here’s a photo (sorry it’s grainy, just a phone shot from the back of the room) of her taking to the stage, about to throw her moves…

And then add to how proud we were seeing her up there on stage, the folder and transition documents that we received, detailing all that she’s been up to over the past year. The words ‘friendly’, ‘confident’ and ‘energy’ jumped out most frequently, which I think are great attributes in a 4 year old (there is absolutely no bias here, obviously!) and it seems she’s already competent in most of the key learning areas that she needs to reach next year, so I’d say she’s well set up and ready to go.

Sad though this end of an era makes me, it also makes me one proud mummy. And for that, my gorgeous girl, I thank you.
