This is my not so little girl picking up her ballet medal test certificate (sorry I’ve obscured her name). She’s been doing ballet since she was four and she really enjoys it, but I have to confess that she does it for fun, not because I thought she was really talented or anything. But this certificate shows that she is super talented in ballet – she got a honours grade – the top!! I couldn’t have been prouder of her!
Then tonight it was parents evening and both my little girls had such good words from their teachers it brought tears to my eyes. They are literally excelling in everything, getting on well with their friends and basically thriving. These little lives I have created, nurtured, held, fed, watered and cuddled are now going forth into the world on their own, standing on their own two feet and rocking it. You can’t ask for more than that.
