Next week is my daughter’s birthday and I wanted to share a special tradition we have with you.
Each year I write a letter to my daughter telling her what happened in her life that previous year and how proud I am of her. While I have shared snippets of these letters for her, I keep them in my possession to give to her when she’s older. She is really grown up and mature and it’s time to share all the letters with her. Here is part of this year’s letter for you to read.

A Letter to my Daughter
What an amazing year you have had. It started with your participation as a soldier in The Nutcracker. You did a wonderful job dancing and it was such a thrill to watch you on the big stage. I am proud of how serious you take your dancing. Your talents were recognized and you were invited to be in a special ballet program and student production of Alice in Wonderland.
If was such a fun production and you did a great job emoting as you danced. You also participated in the spring ballet production. You made a lovely fairy. I was so thrilled to see that you got two contemporary roles in the recital part of the show. I had so many people tell me how amazing you were in A Boat on the Sea. The emotional dance brought me to tears.
I am very proud of the daughter you’ve become. You are smart, creative, mature, determined, hilarious, polite, adorable and very loving. I love how you let things roll off you and that you are a good friend to all. We are so lucky to have you as a daughter! You inspire me to be a great mom and friend.
I love you!
My daughter is very busy with several ballet rehearsals and other activities each week. She needs to grab food for an easy snack on the go. We have a variety of healthy snacks that she takes with her.
