Fly High my birdie.


As you get ready to fly on your own, I want you to know the real answer which I never gave to all those questions on: Why are you sending your daughter to a boarding school?

It’s not because:

I am too busy with my jobs and want to hive-off the responsibility 
(you know how I love to irritate you all the time!!)

Or because it is the latest fad 
(Along with Smart-Phones and FB, I hate all the latest fads related to soon-to-be-teen girls)

Or because you are not ‘doing well in school’ 
(I do admit, here in writing, that I am proud or all your prizes, and your performance in the Choir, and Kathak, and badminton, and your painting too..)

Or because you are giving me any “trouble” 
(I will miss arguing with a worthwhile partner)

Or because we do not have decent schools in our city
(Yes, your school is a Great one)

I am just letting go, so that you have more horizons to explore, more opportunities to grow, to learn, to flower and to bloom.

I am letting you go even though I'll miss you every moment, because you will find a whole new world.

I am letting go because I love you too much to keep you close, but confined.

Your wings are now ready for the sky.
Fly my baby.
Don’t look down for me,

Because, I’ll be right there with you..

    1. Yes I need the hugs because it feels like ripping out a part of myself to send her away.
      Thanks for being there!
