Today is your first step towards independence and it is exciting and scary for all of us. This afternoon we will take you to your nursery for the first time, so that you can meet the staff and children there. This will be your second home, wehre you will spend 3 days a week, whilst we go to work. You will meet new friends, learn to play with other babies, have relationships with other carers.
You are such a happy, smiling, contented and confident baby and I know that you will cope with this big change just fine. I think this is harder for me and your Dad. I kept you safe for 9 months before you were born. I looked after you full time for 6 months, kept you close to me, fed you, cuddled you. And now it's time for me to give you up for a few days a week. I feel very emotional about it - you still seem so small and fragile. And yet I know this is a positive change for you. And it will be for me. After I stop crying and get used to the change!
We wish you lots of fun and exploring and new experience at nursery and we will always be there for you.
your Mami x
