Life lessons now you are 11!

28 July 2017

Dear son,

I can't believe you are eleven. I know everyone says it but time does fly and at the speed of Concorde.  Where did my baby go? We are so proud of you. You are a funny, sensitive, caring and warm boy and I know you will grow up to be a wonderful young man. You have taught me so much. You inspire me every day with your strength, resilience, humour and your trust. You drive me to be a better person.



Now you are eleven I would like to impart some wisdom too...

20 Life lessons now you are 11:


  1. When in doubt take the next step
  2. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone
  3. Always be you!
  4. It is Ok to cry sometimes
  5. Don't compare yourself to others
  6. Don't take yourself too seriously
