Proud Mummy Momment

Just even the title of this post will embarrass my eldest daughter, but today she heads off to start the new chapter of her life called Grammar School.

She worked really hard to get there, and looks just too grown up in her uniform. I know however, she will soon be a wee fish in a very big school, and she will be very much in my prayers today.

Here she is with her Dad just before he leaves for work.

I will add a few more photos later in the day.

Today I am Hooked on being a mum to a lovely daughter (although I MAY be just a bit biased) and am Inspired by her zest and enthusiasm for life.

Check out what others are Hooked on and finding Beautiful.

  1. She’ll be fine. The first day of Grammer school is mostly about figuring out how to get from Maths which ends at 9.45am at one end of the building to Art which starts at 9.45am at the other end of the building. An ability that will serve her well:) I went to grammer school and even though we over slept until 8.15m this morning Chloe was still fed, dressed and early for school:) Although I look like I’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards.

  2. oh my…look at how fast they have grown… i can see a young lady there already. i know i will have that same scary and nervous feeling one day. but i guess all i can tell you now is she will be fine.. and i hope when i get to that point someone will tell me that too….


    There is never enough time to reflect on the joy of children. Good for you. Thanks for sharing.


  4. What a gorgeous girl you have there. Grammar school (which I am guessing would be middle school–here it starts in 6th grade) is different at first but once they get the hang of it they are fine.

  5. JanMary,

    I am so glad you blogged your dd, for she will treasure this later on. Its a GOOD embarassment – can you remember your own Mum doing this and you and you were secretly glad, right?

    She does look like a poised young lady.

    Just popping in to say hello, catching up since my sister left today after a weeks visit. I’m a little sad and weepy missing her already. I did not one lick of housework while she was here, just sucked up our time together.

    Hope you have a good weekend and I will be back soon!

    Love, Barb

  6. Wonder Boy is in Middle School this year. He is at a different school from the Princess who is in 3rd grade at the Elementary level. Wonder Boy is in the 6th and is 11. Is that about the same as what your daughter is. They don’t wear uniforms. I wish all the schools did. I think it would cut out peer pressure to wear certain brands and styles. My Son by love (formerly an engineer)is teaching Geometry and Robotics at the High School, 9th and 10 grades in two different buildings.
    I know you are proud of your daughter and of course want a photo of the first day of school.

  7. I’m so glad you took a first day of school picture -as we force our kids to do every year. They become trasures as they show the passage of time and how our precious treasures grow up! (and my teenage daughter started high school! Ack – boys! Dating!)
