You have to be your mum.

Until you will be ready to have this discussion, I am writing.

I was always there for you. I have been :

· Waking you up in the morning

· Putting you to sleep at night

· Dressing you up

· Bathing you

· Feeding you

· Reading you books and telling you stories

· Checking with a doctor your growth

· Reminding you that being sick is temporary, and you will be again fine in some days

· Guiding you to school or the gum, even when you didn’t feel like going

· Checking with your teachers your progress

· Encouraging you to take the first step

· Celebrating your first step

· Encouraging you to learn how to ride a bike

· Celebrating you riding a bike

· Asking you to dream of the future

· Asking you to never quit, try one more time, every time

· Asking you to not be angry with kids that make you feel bad, at least not for long.
