To my darling boy Bear,
There are many things I want for you in this life my darling boy, I want for you to travel, explore and learn as much about the world as your possibly can. I want for you to climb mountains, trek through jungles and swim the seas. I want you to be kind and loving to your fellow man. To protect those who need a little kindness and help those who do not have a voice. I want to be passionate about conserving our planet and the creatures we share our planet with. I want for you to carve a successful life for yourself, in whichever way ‘a successful life’ may mean to you. But most of all, I want you to be happy.
Today you start a new chapter in your life my darling boy. Today we both venture into a new era, one where you need me that little bit less and you gain a little more independence. Today you begin on a new pathway to your future. You have been given an opportunity today that not all children are given. You have been given the chance to receive one of the best educations in the world. Seize this opportunity and take in as much as you can. However, I want you to remember that is never so much about grades, marks or who is best at writing, but more about learning and growing as much as you can in your own capacity. It is not about being the best in class, but about being the best version of yourself that you can be.
To my darling boy Bear on your first day of school. I wish you all the best on your new adventure. Work hard, play harder, live in the moment and always remember to be kind.
Your ever loving Mummy xxx
P.S. Enjoy your snack.
