I wrote recently about a preemie kind of proud.
Today I am simply proud!
My nearly five year old is receiving a Star Achievers Award at school this afternoon for working really hard with his learning.
Just three weeks ago he spent 6 nights in hospital with respiratory difficulties.
Two days after coming home, he was back at school.
“He’s pretty tough”, I said to his teachers who were worried that he was going back too soon.
I am so proud of my little boy who doesn’t give up.
I am proud of my little boy – the youngest in his year; the one who should have started school this coming September, but instead was born into an academic year too soon.
I am so thankful to his teachers who give him extra support; who recognise the needs of a child born into the wrong academic year and who encourage him to be him – a four year old.
Like any parent I am proud of my Star Achiever.
My Star Achiever who keeps going; who takes everything in his stride…
My Super Star Samuel, who has been making me proud since day one.
