My beautiful Maya

Dear Maya

IMG_0104Mummy has planned to write you these letters for many years, but somehow life always got in the way and I haven’t managed it.  But I thought I would finally do it.  On Monday, you start Year 1 and as I look on how much you have grown as a person, my heart swells with pride.  You are the most beautiful, loving, generous (though IMG_0190you can sometimes be a little mean to your brothers) little girl I know.  Your personality, smile and nature are so infectious, that I know you will always be fine in making new friends and settling in.  I watch you sometimes running around the playground, when you don’t know mummy is there, and I have always seen your face full of laughter, care free fun and surrounded by your friends.  One thing I love is the way you have made friends in all different classes which shows to me that you see no barriers in making friends and socializing.  I hope you carry on being just the way you are!

Your year at reception in school went better then I could ever have hoped and I have seen you learn so many new skills, learning to write, read and become a maths superstar just like your Papa.  It always makes me smile how your mind works jus like your Papa’s.  The way you spell (caw, Lundun, nisb) and your logic is just like Papas and I can see you being just as amazing as your dad.   The thing that I am most proud of is the first comment that your teachers make to me is that you are ALWAYS proud of the work you have done, but are always trying to improve and learn new things.  Those are great qualities and they should always be your focus.  You should always be proud of everything you do but always think how you could make it every more fantastic the next time.  I love to hear you talking about you standing in front of your class and tell them about all the adventures we have as a family!  It makes me want to show you more of the world and have even more adventures.IMG_0177

There are so many things that I want and pray for you.  I hope that your blessed with good health, patience and that your caring and loving nature
never diminishes.  There is also a few things that Mummy wants to see you do this year:

  • Make friends with everyone, people are all the same and you should take any chance you can of making new friends.  If there is every anyone lonely or on their own, go and be their friend.  You never know what a difference they will make in your life or you in theres.
  • Maya, life is one big adventure so always dream big, I love hearing your travel plans of Hawaii.  You should always let your imagination run wild and enjoy each and every day and thing you do, to the fullest.
  • I want you to be confident and approach new things with an open mind.  Its ok to be scared but you should always give something new a try.  You may not like it but it may also be the awesome thing that you have ever done!  And always know that even if mummy and papa are not there with you, we are your biggest fans and are so very proud of you!
  • Mummy wants to see you you put your full effort in everything you do.  You should always try your best, including the things that you may not like.

IMG_0222I could carry on writing about all the great things that I love about you but just know Maya that you are superstar through and through.  Mummy and Papa may not say it often enough but we love you with all our heart.  You have been a blessing in our life and brought so much love, laughter and fun into our lives. Fatigue and drowsiness are common side effects of Klonopin. You should be careful when driving or performing other tasks that require your concentration until you are used to the effects of drug.  You and your brothers are our pride and joy and complete us as individuals, and our family in a way that I cannot explain.  Just know that you are loved, cherished and there will always be two people who will be thinking of you and glowing with pride knowing that you are our Maya.

Love you now and always.

Mummy & Papa.


I am a traveller, mother and blogger. We love to go on adventures (big and small, near and far) and strive to show our children how amazing and beautiful the world is! I caught the travel bug many moons ago and despite having three little adventurers, I still suffer from "itchy" feet. We love the great outdoors and one another. Come and join the fun :)
