Tears and meltdowns there have been a few!

Today is different as I look at you!

There is excitement and nerves and happiness too,

I forgot how much school stole this from you!

Today is different, something new, am sending you off to a different view, a school  where you can be just be you!

Am still as nervous and worried too, because I know you struggle with all things new.

Today I have a faith in teachers who will take care of you!

And bring back the smile I miss seeing on you!

I hope they get to see the real you, the funny chatty caring wild child that I adore!

Today is a different view, one that’s a right for you!

One that I hope brings back smile and joy of learning for you!

Thanks to our guest blogger Michelle for this lovely back-to-school poem. We know so many will relate to this!
