To my dearest T,
You are 6 in September. The last six years have hurtled past and I can’t believe you are going to be 6. The day I found out I was pregnant with you, was of course a day that changed my life forever. You have shaken everything upside down since your arrival and that has not stopped. For that I am thankful.
You are an engaging, breath of fresh air; a clever, funny soul with some quirky dance moves. You ‘want to know stuff’, I am glad to help with that. Trips to the library, science games, visits to interesting places, chatting about insects and lego but most of all listening to you about the elements and the periodic table; space and your favourite moon, Enceledous. I see so much of myself in you. The early reading, the pursuit of knowledge, the interest in lots of different subjects. I also shared/share the other traits, the lack of sleeping, the frustration when others don’t understand, the confusion when people your age are not interested in the moon’s of Saturn or why doesn’t your teacher know detailed information straight away about element 100, Fermium. I look things up.
The most important thing to note is that one day you will find those people that know these things or who love the graphic novels you do or who know the Troll or Hotel Transylvania films like you or who love ribbon rice noodles. You will meet others who might love lots of different exciting things you have never considered. You will build friendships and enjoy yourself. I can’t wait to see and know the person you will become. All you need to know is that I love you more. More and more. That will never go away and I will always love you my poppet. On your 6th birthday I wish you a happy fun day with cake, balloons and bouncy castles. For your life I wish you everything, my lovely one. Love Mummy xxx
