Dear Ryan, you are now 4 & 1/2 years old which means that I have 6 more months till you go to
primary school. We've been calling it "big kids school" for a couple of years now but very soon, you will be one of those "big kids". Crazy!!!
This year, you have really developed friendships at your daycare and we have been talking about
how to make new friends and how we can be friends with lots of different people. You have a little gang of dudes at your daycare - Nicholas, Archie and Noah. Some days you like playing with them
and other times you don't. That might be because they do not feel like playing the same thing as you, or might not be feeling well, or want to play with someone else. It's a hard thing to learn as on those days you have felt sad, but you quickly get over it and are best of buds the next day. Some of these
friends will be going to the same primary school as you and some may not, but that's ok. People
move through our life all the time, and while it would be nice to have them in our lives forever, it just doesn't work that way. People choose different paths to us, and we choose different paths to them. But we learn from having them in our life - no matter how short or long that may be.
Remember to be as kind as you can to all the people who do pass through your life. Your Jenma
always said to be, "you may not like the person, but you can always say hello and then move on". I
don't get on with everyone, very few people do, and that is OK. But say hello, try to be nice and then get on with what you are doing.
You are quite a caring little soul, sometimes that can make you quite precious and sensitive, and
while that might mean that not everyone will want to be your friend, remember that I love you. I'm
proud of you. You have a kind and caring heart. Never loose that.
