To Jessica on her last day of preschool

Darling Jessica,

I can’t quite believe we’re here; that today is your last day of preschool.  It doesn’t feel so very long ago that I walked you to preschool for the first time and came home and cried a little at the thought that my baby girl was big enough to be going to preschool.  How long those three hours before I came to collect you seemed – wondering how you were getting on, whether you were enjoying yourself, whether you missed me.… Read more
