Star Achiever Award!

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.

    That’s so lovely, I often feel as though I am bursting with a special kind of pride – now I have a name for it “premie-pride”. You’re boy sounds like such a trooper. X
