Dear Darling Mahdi,
Happy Birthday to you! It’s been a true joy watching to grow and develop your personality this year.
You are curious, inquisitive, and always open to ideas. I can also see strong leadership qualities in you that i’m sure will only grow with your new role as a big brother.
Unfortunately, you are also flexing some other qualities that scare me. Stubbornness, independence, adventurousness… All these scare me, because i never want you to get hurt. But i guess i need to let you grow up eventually.
We ARE excited that you will soon have your first school day. And i hope you make a ton of friends.
This year you also learnt that not everyone is nice. Some are mean, and born bullies. I pray you stay strong and not let the haters get you down. Always lean on me and ayah for advice and if you are feeling blue.
Here’s to another great year.
So much love,
