On Tuesday the 4th of May 2004 my life changed forever. My daughter *Mitten* was born in the Maternity Unit at the Al Wasl Hospital. I was 38 years old and embarking on Motherhood. Today we will be celebrating Mitten's 7th Birthday. Seven whole years since she entered our lives. Seven years of learning, loving, smiling and crying too! There are few things I want to tell you Mitten, so I have written them here for posterity ...

Mitten you have been a challenge in every sense of the word, you never slept, you didn't eat at one point, you tried to run over the cats in your babywalker! when you walked you thought you could run and never stopped to look back. You changed my life for the better. You are my reason for being most days, even when you have had me awake half the night!! You won't remember this as you were only a year old when I celebrated my 40th Birthday, with you my knee! Aunty Lynne and Aunty Amanda came all the way from England to celebrate with us. Guess what? tomorrow night Aunty Lynne is back again to celebrate your 7th Birthday with you at Wild Wadi on Friday. It's going to be a day fit for a Princess, with your very own Prince Trent coming along to keep you company.

I just wanted to tell you that you are a very very special little girl and that we love you so so much, I hope you love all your presents and have a fabulous Birthday today.

Love you always
Mummy and Daddy
