Five Today - Another Happy Birthday Post from a very proud Mummy!
My Big princess turns a whopping 5 years old today and i can't believe she has survived half a decade with me as her mummy - she rolled off the bed at five months and i nearly had a heart attack; I'd only turned my back for a second to get a nappy, then she nearly fell down a whole flight of stairs at 18months old (silly mummy forgot to lock the stair gate) and at the age of three whilst i was other wised engaged watching the latest episode of Hollyokes her little sister Fifi trapped Mia's Index finger in the playroom door and broke it! I was mortified and felt like the worlds worst mother but so proud of how brave she was at the hospital, especially when after receiving several stickers, lollipops and a certificate she declared to the whole of A&E that when she grows up she wants to become a doctor, i don't think she quite realised the majority of their time is not taken up with appeasing toddlers and handing out stickers and sweets.
All the pain of breastfeeding in those early weeks, when my nipple felt like it had been through a cheese grater, The horrendous sleepless nights and the constant worrying, embarrassing temper tantrums, incessant whining about which vegetables she won't eat, and hitting her sister several times a day because she stole her dolly has all been worth it in the end. She is a beautiful, caring, intelligent constant joy in my life and i am so proud to call her my daughter.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweetheart, i hope you enjoy your present sorry it's not the drum kit with lessons that you have asked for but i think for mummy's sanity that is for the best, the noise levels in the house are more than enough to be dealing with at the moment. Enjoy your special day,
All my love and kisses forever,
