Dear Daughter

A letter to my daughter.

On your 5th birthday I stopped to think about the time we've had. Only 5 little years, and yet you've grown so much, I've grown so much.

You're 5th birthday has been overshadowed by so many other things going on in our life. Your cousin is pregnant and expecting a baby, aunt Janelle is also pregnant and Joel will soon have a little brother or sister. You are about to start Kindergarten and mommy has been worried almost to the point of sickness. I think she worries more about what she will do with her time than how you will do in school.

You may not realize it yet, but your life is about to dramatically change. It won' be just 3 days a week for a few hours, like preschool was. Now you will begin forming the friendships that will carry you through high school.

The next year is the start of a long road of new things to come your way. This summer you learned how to swim, but that's not over, you will continue to improve as you keep taking lessons. Your dance from last year will become gymnastics this year. You will learn to read and will be reading me stories in no time. You will learn to add and subtract. You will learn about animals and earth and so many different things, it will be an amazing time.

Our dreams for you are big, and we want the best things for you. We want you to experience so many different things and we will do everything we can to help that happen. I love you Ady Cakes
