You are 10 year old today. You think that this time is an eternity, because this is your entire life. To me, it passed way too quickly.
Now you are turning 10 and you are in middle school already! You are still a sweet and cuddly child, but you already have sarcastic humor of a teenager. You desperately want to be taken seriously - at home, in school, and in relationships with your friends. You have a very strong sense of self and you tend to be very focused on what you want. The art of compromise does not come easily to you, but you can be very generous and helpful to others, especially to younger children. Your heart is usually in the right place and you always strive to make good choices. You still have to learn a lot about what makes people tick before you are able to become a leader you want to be. I am looking forward to see how you will grow and change in the next year, and the next decade as you leave your childhood behind and eventually venture into your own independent life. Remember that I will always be there, loving and supporting you.
