My daughter’s birthday is usually an emotional time for me, it comes with soo many memories from when she was born to where we are now..
It sometimes seems surreal how fast time flies. Just the other day we we’re celebrating milestones like her first word, her first day at school.
Our conversations were based on her numerous why and how questions. Now they’re full of well thought out opinions and arguements.
I always write a post on her birthday but she does not get to read my posts, so she’ll never be privy to my thoughts.
Then I got to thinking the posts could be an awesome present for her one day.I could compile them and give them to her when she turns eighteen.
Growing up I dnt really have an open relationship with my mum, where we could talk about stuff .
That’s one of the things I work hard to cultivate with my daughter. That she will always be able to talk me,even when we get to the teenage drama.
Its humbling to see your child practising what you have taught her, to know that you are doing something right especially in today’s world where our kids are exposed to so much.
Her birthday is not only about her growth but about mine as well. There is no manual for parents, most of us are just trying our best and learning as we go.
So here’s to my princess as she turns ten and to me as i grow into a better and hopefully wiser mother.
