Baby Ace even got to say goodbye to Bowie before school!

She continued: "I can’t even begin to explain how emotional I’ve been feeling, I’m sure loads of people feel like this when their babies are starting their school journey (please tell me I’m not on my own). Now I’ve been off work for so long I feel like I’m so used to having him by my side, he follows me everywhere I go and I love it."

Despite her reservations, the mum-of-three revealed Bowie couldn't wait to follow in his big brothers' footsteps! "He’s beyond excited to start tomorrow and be one of the ‘big kids’ and I’m so encouraging of it but god I’m finding it hard. It feels like starting reception is the first day of letting them go a little and start their own journey. 

"He will be absolutely fine and will LOVE it, I know he will. You just might find me sobbing in the corner for a few days but I’m sure I’ll get used to it very quickly."
