My beautiful, difficult, spirited little girl celebrated her 4th birthday while we were on holiday in America.
I don’t mind telling you, it has been a challenge parenting her through these years. A Challenge.
But this morning, the first after our long plane journey home, she said to me: “Mummy, sometimes I struggle.”
“What do you mean?”
“I just struggle.”
“Just stuff, mum. Stuff.”
Yes it’s been hard and yes I’ve had to leave the room to pound on the pillow every now and again and yes, sometimes I question just what I’ve done to deserve such a strong-willed child, but boy is she worth it.
Happy birthday gorgeous, love your mum. x
