Letter To My Princess 1 – 8 Years

To my Princess 1, I can’t begin to comprehend the fact that you are now 8 years old. Each year you grow older, I feel older and it’s further and further away from the moment when I was at school still. There is so much going on in your little world that it’s really hard to keep up. I am …

To my Princess 1, I’ve been really disappointed with your behaviour lately. To the point we’ve been to see the doctors because I know this just isn’t normal behaviour for a 6 year old.

To My Princess 1 – 6 Years

To my Princess 1, I can’t believe where all these years are disappearing to. I have to admit it does feel like such a long time ago that you were that tiny premature baby fighting for life. You keep asking me if by being six it’ll mean you’ll be big as in tall. I have to keep reminding you that …

Letter To My Princess 1 – 5 Years 10 Months

To my Princess 1, It’s fast approaching your sixth birthday. It’s very scary how quickly you’re childhood is passing now. This month your newest little sister made her dramatic entrance.

To My Princess 1 – 5 Years 6 Months

To Princess 1, This morning on our walk to school I told you that you were officially 5 and a half years old! It confused you a bit and sparked conversations about how many days until you’d be 6. The walk to school was refreshing, it was the only part of the day week month that you haven’t been rude …
