A Letter to My Daughter

Dear Tate,

Today is your first day of Kindergarten. Yes, you have attended pre-school for two years, but this is different. For one, you will have to ride the bus, or as your uncle and I used to call it, the "Cheese Wagon."
I know you are excited, but I can also sense your anxiety. You are wondering whether you'll be big enough; you are afraid it might be too hard. Daddy is wondering whether all of the teaching your mom and I have already done will withstand the influences of the other kids.
Every day since we started bringing you to pre-school, I have told you this: Be kind, compassionate, and polite; and, I love you. Now I'd like to add to that: Try your best and take risks.
Even though all of the research is trending towards boys performing less than girls, schools can still be a place of limitations. Someone is going to tell you that "Girls can't do that" or "That is for boys." But you know better. Be the Pioneer Princess that you already are. Continue to be great at math. Keep being curious about science. Never let a chance to read something pass you by. Create a story. Express yourself artistically. Embrace a challenge.
So there you have it, babygirl. What it comes down to is this, be you.

I love you.

My name is Sophie and I am currently writing my Masters dissertation about ‘work blogging’. I have found your blog on and want to ask you if you would be willing to participate in my study. It would only take two minutes to fill in my questionnaire under the following link:
No personal details about you or the company you work for are asked for and all the information and data you give will be treated confidentially and will only be used for the purpose of this study.
I would really appreciate your help 
Thank you in advance

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended You, and I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of Hell, but most of all because they offend You, my God, Who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life.
