My Letter to Ale who turns 12 today, and will always have my heart Cheekie Monkies

Below we are. The day is eventually right here.


My very little girl is not so tiny any more.

It is hard to believe that that 12 many years in the past I was eagerly anticipating her arrival in the maternity ward. The valuable toddler that I held in my arms then is now officially 12, one particular year absent from becoming a teen and a few extra years away from becoming a young woman. 

She is no for a longer time my little one woman.

Wherever has the time long gone!?!! I guess we were possessing far too considerably exciting all these years! 😆 Following all, I had the very same thoughts when Ash and Ayd turned 12. But this feels a tad extra bittersweet, likely simply because deep in my coronary heart, I know that all of my children have really developed up with Ale turning 12. 

But as tradition dictates – just like how I wrote letters to Ash and Ayd on their 12th birthdays – in this article is my letter to Ale:

Pricey Ale,

Yo, wassup! 12 years aged, gentleman. This is totally Crazy!

I am in disbelief that you are a single yr from being a teen. You are escalating up way much too fast! But I wouldn’t have it any other way mainly because I could not be far more happy to be your Father.

The past calendar year has whizzed by too quickly. I still remember penning a put up for your 11th birthday last 12 months but seem what transpired.

I am glad that you still share the similar really like for manga and anime like me.

I’m relieved that you nonetheless snicker at my jokes (at times).

I am amused that you even now smirk each time I make enjoyment of Mummy.

I am delighted that you still keep on to learn and up grade new techniques, like online video modifying and doing crochet – all from viewing YouTube films!

I am written content that you however uncover it neat to hang out with me, and extended may perhaps that proceed.

Above all, I’m proud of the tough get the job done you set in and how centered and determined you were for your PSLE this yr.

The PSLE 12 months has not been simple and clean-sailing. But you buckled down and in Mummy’s and my eyes, you were much extra disciplined than your two older brothers. Compared with their PSLE many years when I experienced to nag and assign them exam papers to apply, you did the papers on your own AND MARKED THEM Too! I simply cannot fault you for the work shown. 😍

And of training course, I beam with satisfaction whenever I see how an wonderful sister you are to your brothers. All of you may well argue at occasions, but you generally believe of them and make confident they are taken treatment of. Likewise for all of your other cousins, no speculate you are the go-to playmate each individual solitary time.

But I get it, turning 12 and becoming on the cusp of teenagehood is a big deal. It can be the age exactly where you are attempting to locate out who you are and probably yearn to be approved between your friends. You will have to make your personal choices and discover that some of all those selections will be fantastic even though others will be negative. And at times, the repercussions of those people selections may last for several years.

Though Mummy and I promise to assistance you from the sidelines and let you discover from your issues, your dad and I will be there to support you make possibilities whenever you need to have us. But for certain choices that we have to make for you (mainly because you are nevertheless not an grownup legally), we recognize that you won’t normally agree, but know that they are designed with appreciate, and only the ideal of intentions. Attempt to be individual with us and we’ll attempt to be affected person with you.

You have hardly ever been a tween right before, and even though I have been a mother or father of two tweens (aka your brothers), I am nevertheless learning. 😅 But this is the offer: know that even when we disagree, I will usually appreciate you. That practically nothing you can do will at any time change that.

As you phase into Secondary University existence future 12 months, my desire for you is to HAVE Enjoyable. Make new buddies, study new items and delight in new encounters. And whilst performing all of that, normally believe that in on your own – no issue how unusual you could think you are! Simply because you are these an wonderful woman, daughter, sister, granddaughter and cousin!

Thank you for making it possible for me grace when I make blunders, for training me the correct definition of endurance. Thank you for continue to wanting to snuggle on my tummy when we check out anime jointly. Thank you for holding my hand as we navigate this Daddy-daughter journey with each other. 

Satisfied Birthday Ale!

You are a reward and you have my heart, generally.
