Smera means the smiling one. The moment we saw her, the name felt just perfect for her. She has given our lives a new meaning. She is now 8 months old and it just feels like yesterday when we held her in our arms for the first time.
Teachers, Elders, Friends, Mentors, Experiences – I am sure you have a number of sources to thank for what you have learned through your life.
Have you thought about how much we can learn from babies? Everyday has been a new lesson learnt for me with Smera.
Here is a tribute to my young teacher - eight things I've learnt for my 8 month old:
- Wake up with a smile
- Try something new everyday
- Don’t give up
- It’s ok to cry
- Eat small meals
- Early to bed, early to rise
- Be curious
- Sleep like a baby
