'Emmerdale' actress Charley Webb has admitted it was "hard" to see her son Bowie all grown up and ready for his first day of school, because she has been off work for "so long" she is used to having the youngster by her side
Charley Webb found it "hard" to see her son Bowie grown up and ready to attend his first day of school.
The 'Emmerdale' actress is currently on maternity leave after she and her husband and co-star Matthew Wolfenden welcomed their third child, Ace, who is now 12 months old, but she got emotional this week as the couple's second son, four-year-old Bowie, prepared to start school.
She wrote on Instagram: "My little shadow is heading to school tomorrow. We had a special day today, just the three of us and I'm so happy we got to have it. It's hard with 3 to have that one to one time but today we did and it was amazing. 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. 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. For all the Mums and Dads whose kids are heading off tomorrow or have already started I hope you're doing ok. Xxx (sic)"
Charley – who also has son Buster, 10, with Matthew – recently reassured her followers that people's lives aren't always as "perfect" as they are portrayed on social media, and admitted some days looking after her kids are "stressful from start to finish".
She wrote: "Little family. Today has been such a lovely Sunday. Bowie has spent hours doing crafts, we've watched a film. We've been for a long walk and this afternoon we're having a roast with our little bubble (@missemmaatkins).
"Some days are not like this though, some days are stressful from start to finish and I'm really not just saying that. Some days I can't wait for bedtime. I'm so aware of people feeling like rubbish when they're on social media because everyone's life looks so perfect and theirs isn't. Remember, people only post what they want you to see. Happy Sunday (sic)"
