Today my daughter turns into a teenager.
To Freya every birthday is a day to look forward to, to celebrate and enjoy being the centre of attention.
To a mother a child’s birthday doesn’t go by without a moment to amaze at the miracle by which a baby is conceived, born and develops into a young person with independence and opinions.
Leap forward to secondary school and a mother can only hope that their child chooses their way carefully and makes friends with those in who’s company they can relax and be themselves.
I am so fortunate to witness seven such lovely friends at my daughter’s baking party, yesterday afternoon.
Eight 12 and 13 year old behaving like 12 and 13 year olds, enjoying baking in each other’s company and delighting in their creations.
Thanks to the Time Bakery in Wakefield for creating such a special afternoon.
Love, Lucie x
