My dear 5 year old,
You are my kind lover of animals, my wild child, my tattoo enthusiast, my angry, stubborn, funny and temperamental girl.
You want what you want and will stop at nothing to get it.
You love to please but will do so selectively.
You are smart, you are wise, but sometimes you pretend to not know things.
You are gentle, you are sweet. Sometimes you are scared. You are courageous.
You are the most intense person I have ever met and I believe you could command a legion.
I am sorry for the times I have gotten upset with you, not been patient or kind. I am sorry for the times I have let you watch too much TV, not crafted or drawn with you. I am sorry for the times I refused to read just one more book or yelled.
I am sorry that sometimes I forget your body is only 5.
You are my 5 year old.
You are your own person.
I love every part of you and I promise I will do everything I can to channel your strength towards good and what you choose to be your life’s path.
You are amazing.
I love you
