Oh darling girl, you'll be 13 tomorrow
Our beautiful girl is growing up and carving a way for herself into her teenage years.
There will be challenges and the road will feel rocky at times, but we know that you have your feet solid on the ground and will figure things out for yourself.
You are beginning to metamorphosise into who you are, carving out your identity. Being true and authentic while still struggling with the peer pressure that comes at this time in our lives.
We love watching you grow and talking and debating and rationalising things out with you.
We love seeing how you are moving into expressing yourself more and more in the arts,ballet,drama and musical theatre and how brave you are to take up new ventures.
Keep your sensitive and kind natured self,
question things and continue to want to learn and strengthen your knowledge of the world.
Keep giggling and being girly and free spirited.
May this next year of your tender life be blessed with grace and beauty.
Thank you for keeping our days with you amazing and adventurous.
Many happy returns Alice
We love you so, we do.
