As this week is the week when most school children will be heading back to the classrooms and Facebook is awash with “first day” pictures, I thought I would wade in with a contribution of my own. The purpose of the “first day” pictures is to compare your child to a) those others of the same age/year group and b) themselves 12 months ago.
These two pictures here demonstrate the contrast between my son and my daughter over a gap of only 5 years. Only…. blimey, such a lot has happened in the past 5 years but nothing has been so remarkable as the growth rate of my son. Emma seems to have shrunk beside her brother!!
I thank God daily for my two children. They are healthy, hearty, beautiful inside and out, and they are my pride and joy. I know pride is a sin, but come on, who wouldn’t be proud of these two?!
Good luck tomorrow son on your first day in Year 10. Gulp.
