Although it seems like you have been in my life forever I am in denial that my littlest boy is so big.
These last couple of years you have grown into the most amazingly caring little boy. With your need to make sure everyone else is happy around seemingly built-in.
Nothing showed this more than the last few months with 2 new little boys starting in your class and your absolute determination that they should be your friend so you can help them at playtime and at lunchtime as you worried they wouldn’t know what to do.
Your steadfast determination that people around you need to be happy has won over all the hearts in your class it seems and not just your peers. Your recent parents evening only went to prove that as your teacher confirmed my thoughts that you were a thoughtful and caring boy and her voicing her thoughts on you ‘going far’ were music to my ears.
Although it’s always such a joy to see how much you have grown this last year I have watched you go from a super nervous worrier to a more content and confident little boy and it has been so lovely to watch.
The biggest joy for me however to see is how you have taken to brotherhood. I worried you would see Jacob as a threat over our time and instead of being jealous and possessive that you could have been you became a big brother to be proud of. You take him by the hand and show him so many new things every single day and not only does he love you for it, I do too.
You my little man are pretty damn special , your heart is pure and your mind is amazing. You truly are going places my little fella and the world is really your oyster.
I am just very very proud that I am your Mummy and I get to watch your story unfold every single day.
