This time 5 years ago I was lying awake, absolutely bricking it about my forthcoming Caesarean. 13 April 2006 was my due date anyway, and my induction had failed. I’d no idea I was carrying a little girl. I’d no idea that she’d turn my entire life upside down. I had no inkling of the depths to which I’d love her, nor of the chaos, fear, bewilderment, fun, love and joy she’d bring.
Over 60 months I’ve watched my sunny-natured baby grow into a loving, warm-hearted, kind, clever little artist. It seems fitting that the sun shone on her birth day and has done on every birthday since.
Happy 5th birthday, my darling P. Me and Daddy hope it’s as special and lovely as you are xxxxx
