Apr15_MamaAnna

Dear Anna!

You are half way to your 5th birthday now, and it’s the best year yet. I enjoy to see you personality grow and change in front of my eyes.

You are super sweet. You love cuddles, hugs and kisses, and we are still most important people in your world. I love it when you run to me when I come home from work and shower me with kisses. You really try to do the right things and get upset when you make mistakes. We try to let you know that it’s OK to make mistakes sometimes, especially when you try Apr15_Goatsnew things. Lately you’ve been a lot more adventurous and open to new experiences. You love special trips and you talk about seeing the whole world one day, you enjoy meeting new people and you chat up any adult. You are also friendlier to kids and start making more friends lately. I am also excited that you eat so much better, and our food fights are disappearing. You  still have your preferences, but you are open to try Apr9_Bunnyanything as long as we don’t expect you to eat the whole dish. And, of course, you continue to love books. You read everything, any time, anywhere. It’s a lot of fun to watch you love books so even though sometimes I wish you spent a little bit more  time playing and a little less time reading. You do love playing, especially when one of us can join your fantasy world or you have a playmate. Apr9_Flowers

I know that very soon you will enter a new world – kindergarten. Hopefully, you will meet new friends and have teachers who will encourage and challenge you. I am really looking forward to our next 6 months together, my Anna girl.

Love, mama.

What a wonderful letter!

So, does California still let you start kindergarten at 4? I know my brother was going to start it as a 4 year old because his birthday was in November.

Wonderful idea. Are you making a collection of letters for Anna?
