I could burst ...
Am I allowed a bit of self-indulgent smuggery and unadultered maternal pride?
Just this once?
We found out this morning that the Grammar School has offered our beautiful, clever blondie son a scholarship for academic excellence!!!
He's worked so hard - he had exams in all academic subjects in November, sat another gruelling 4 hour exam at the beginning of January and then had to go for a 50 minute interview.
All at just-turned 11 years old.
Baby boy, I am officially the proudest Mum in the whole wide world.
