MOMMIEKNOWSFRESH: My five promises to you on your 5th birthday







My sweet little girl....

It's become sort of a yearly tradition my promises to you on your birthday.  It's my hope that when you look back on these promises that I have exceeded your expectations.  When you were born it felt as if my life was just beginning.  With you came the greatest love I have ever known.  And as you grow there are a few things I never want you to forget: 1. I always have your back, 2. You can do or be anything you want to be in this world, and 3. Never be afraid to fail.  This list goes on but we'll save those for another birthday.


Today as you enter your fifth year of life these are my promises to you:


I promise to be patient


The phrase "I can do it" is your new way of telling me to take a step back because you got this!  As you grow so does your independence, and that can be a little tough for mommy to handle.  But I promise to be patient with you as you learn your way, only slightly hovering nearby....




I promise to be present


The days move by fast, it literally feels like you were just born, and now we're celebrating your fifth birthday! This promise is an important one because it's me making a promise to you to be more present everyday.  No phones, no T.V., just you and me doing whatever you like.  This includes your funny made up song game,  or reenacting Beauty and the Beast for the millionth time.  P.S.- Why am I always the beast?


I promise to let you go.....again


I know, I know, I've made this promise before....I'm working on it! But your my baby so I'm taking baby steps, okay?


I promise to set a good example


It's true what they say, children follow what you do, not what you say. You know how I know? I got you to eat apples because I was eating them!!!  This might not be such a big deal, but it proves the point that I am your first example.  So I promise to always put my best foot forward, and to eat all my veggies so you will too...heh heh.


I  promise to always be your biggest supporter


And finally I promise to always be your biggest supporter.  To always speak life and blessings over everything that you do.  I promise to clap the loudest, stomp the hardest, and to "yaaaas baby yaaaaaas" your entire life because you are not just my child, you are my everything.


Love Always,

Mommie
