Six Years Old

 
Mia is my first born. My eldest daughter. I fell pregnant when i was 16 years old and if I am honest with you I don't regret it. I have no regrets having my beautiful daughter. She taught me to grow up quicker and be a lot more mature. I lost friends on the way but that really doesn't bother me. Right now I have the most beautiful, funny and confident little girl who will be turning six years old on the 5th of December. I can't explain how lucky I feel to have such an amazing daughter.
 
Watching Mia grow up these past years has been amazing. I am one lucky Mam. I do wish the years would slow down a bit but I am loving every single second watching my baby grow up to be a little lady. Mia has become a very independent little girl. She knows what she wants. Such as she knows her dress style - but to me it looks pretty silly and mix-match but if that's what she likes then so be it. Although I do try and help her sometimes but she doesn't have none of it! Her favourites to wear are dresses, tights and skirts. She loves sparkly pink, glitter and leopard prints.
 
Mia was an easy baby. She slept for the full night from about 3 months old. She co-slept with me and I loved it. I was single and I loved my cuddles but as she grew older I found it harder as I felt it was a lot more tired because of course, when you have your child sleeping in the same bed you can't really fall asleep properly because you know someone is there next to you. So around 7 months I moved into her cot and from then on she woke up 1am - 3am every night until she was around 2 years old.
 
 
Mia has always been a huge fan of pen and paper. She loves to write and draw. I have lost count of the amount of notebooks she has gone through. She is currently learning to read herself in school and doing amazingly well. I am learning the English books at home and she is learning welsh at school. She struggles more with English but she is slowly getting there. She is doing fantastically well with the welsh words and books. She had parents evening a couple of weeks ago and she is doing really well in school. She loves going in groups and numeracy, which is a shocker because I hate maths. I was really bad at it!
 
Mia is a brilliant big sister to Elliw and her other younger sister on her Dad's side. Mia can be a right bossy boots towards Elliw and does tend to boss her about a lot but that is Mia! Every day she will play 'teachers' and it's so funny to watch because all I see in her is me as a child. Everything she loves to do such as playing school, writing and drawing, is everything I loved to do when I was a child. So it is lovely to see that my daughter has the same interests and hobbies as me.  
 
I am not quite sure yet to where we are going to go for Mia's birthday but we are planning a family day out just the four of us and I am really looking forward to it. I am planning a small party for her after school the day before her birthday and she will go to her Dad's on Sunday to spend the day there.
 
I honestly can not believe I will be a Mam to a six year old!

  6. Love this post firstly because it describes your daughter as a character and individual and also because it gives a good picture of the achievements of a teen mum. Glad to hear Dad is still involved too. Beautiful post.
