May this email finds you in great health. Today is June 7th, 2016. You are about 2 years & 7 months. and I am going to be 26 in 3 months time. Lately, you’ve been quite fussy. Small things set you off. The wrong cup, Shutting the door. Opening the door. Hugging Amira, then hitting Amira. But that’s okay. We found a way to fix your mood. That is, by playing Ruqyah, and to attend to your needs with lots of love.
Since you became a toddler, sometimes you refuse to be hugged, or refuse to give kisses. You want to be more independent and in power. Then at one point, you realized you are in need of affection, and act out on it. That’s okay Sara, I totally understand. You want to do so much more, but the world is too big for you. It must be hard being a toddler.
Your mind is growing especially well. You are also learning to colour really well. You aced holding a pencil. You are learning your ABC’s, you know how to make du’as, recite Al-Fatihah. We tell you bedtime stories, and you enact or add to the story. Today is the second day of Ramadhan and you’ve been following abah to the mosque. You love going to the mosque even though abah doesn’t let you play far. You enjoy colouring by his side.
Sara, we may not be able to afford to give you everything, but know that we are always trying our best. When things get hard for you, know that you can always consult me. I will always be there for you as long as I live. You have a whole future ahead of you, and we believe in your potential. InshaAllah
Lots of love,
