A Letter To Emilie..


Three years ago I sat down at this very table that I'm sat at now to write A letter to James the day before he started nursery and now I can't believe that I am doing the same for you.

Today you start Nursery. Only two mornings a week but it is a milestone, none the less. I have no doubt that there will be tears when you realise that Mummy isn't staying with you but I know that this is going to be good for you. You love playing with people your own age. You are such a social little thing, but only when the time is right for you. You take a while to warm up to people but when you do, you make them your best friend.

Over two years ago you came like a tornado into our lives and turned everything upside down.. For the better.

You are emotional and stubborn. You know what you want and are not afraid to let people know. I may moan about those traits some days but as you get older they are going to serve you well, so never loose them. Be your own person. Stand up for what you believe in. Never settle for anything.

This is just the beginning for you, little one. It starts with two mornings a week at Nursery but who knows where you'll end up. University? A doctor? A teacher? It doesn't matter. As long as you are happy and fulfilled then you can do whatever you want; and if I know you at all you won't let anyone tell you otherwise. 

This may be the first thing that you are going to do without me by your side but just like with your brother, know that I am your biggest cheerleader. I am always rooting for you whether I'm there in the room with you or not.

I cannot wait to come and pick you up later on. I know that you will run up to me and wrap your arms around my neck and tell me all your little stories from the morning!

Lots of Love
Mummy x


  1. Hi Liane, this is such a beautiful letter to your daughter and such a wonderful way of capturing and remembering this important milestone in her life. Reading it took me back to, and reminded me of when my daughter started nursery not so long ago. It's an exciting, scary and nerve wracking time but it sounds like she will be absolutely fine. I hope that first day goes smoothly for you both. I can't wait to hear how she gets on! Thank you for linking up to #MarvMondays. Emily

    1. Aww thank you for such a sweet comment! She did so well! We had some tears when I left but when I went to pick her up she was happily playing and gave me the biggest hug!


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! I read every single message that is left for me and try to respond to everyone :)
