Six feels like a turning point…
After observing you in school last week, I can really say that my baby has grown up to be a responsible little man. You’re slowly coming out of your shell and you are now more confident of who you are. I’m really proud that you’re starting to form friendships and enjoy playing with your classmates, even if I’m around.
My wish on your birthday is that you don’t lose the curiosity to learn more and ask questions. It might be a difficult task for me to provide you with the correct answers (Why is there a black hole? Why did your grandpa die? Can I go to the moon?) but seeing how you like trivia and reading books transport me to my own childhood.
I used to wonder how this time will be like. No amount of studying and reading parenting books could’ve prepared me. But, we’ll learn together. As with the past five years, you’ve taught me to believe in my capabilities as a mom. I know you’ll bring in more lessons and challenges but I promise you that I will always try my best to focus on you — to focus on what matters.
Happy 6th birthday, Z! We’ll make all your dreams come true.
