A Letter to my Son

So this is it, your last week at school.

You are an adult now, officially. You are coming to the end of your GCSEs. This is your time to enter into the big wide world, make your own choices.

Before you do that, there are some things I'd like to say:

I am unbelievably proud of the way you have handled yourself, throughout your years in comprehensive. You never became one of those kids that thought being cool and popular was more important than an education.

You think people don't like you, but I have yet to meet an ADULT that didn't. You can hold a conversation. That is something to be proud of.

Anybody that has put you down, or made you feel unworthy, are about to be left to your past. I know that one day you will understand that, what they did, they did it out of jealousy. They could see you were the better person, their loss.

The choices you have been making for your future are brilliant. You have shown me that I can trust you, that you know what to do.

I also want you to know that your place in my heart, and our home, will always be there. There is nothing that you could do, that would make that change.

So my sweet, funny, intelligent, handsome boy. 
It's time for me to allow you to spread your wings, a little.

Just remember, I am always here to catch you, if you fall.


  1. My teen also writes finals this year and he will then be flying from the nest. Your boy sounds lovely. I guess we have to let them go now that they are adults. Sniff sniff.

    1. He's my rock, a real good one. I don't have to let him fly the nest, do I!? Xx

  2. Lovely sentiments, but surely they're not really grown up til they're 30...? I'm looking forward to my boy coming back from Uni next month...I have no idea how long for!

  3. Gorgeous post to your teen and one to look back on in years to come, my teens are now in their twenties and I too am so proud of them


I do love comments and read them all, please be nice and tboughful to others x
