Toddle Along Tuesday - Mommy's Dreams

There are so many things I hope you experience in life. So many dreams I have for you.

I envision applauding you as you pass by me wearing your cap and gown - graduating from wherever your dreams have taken you. I know that no matter where you decide to go and what you choose to do, I will be so, so proud of you.

I hope that your curiosity will take you to faraway places and that you'll experience everything that life has in store for you. But, I selfishly hope that you will never stay away too long, and will always come home to me.

I dream that one day I will help you straighten your wedding veil, smooth out your dress, and give you a kiss on your cheek as you prepare to walk down the aisle. He better think the world revolves around you - or else I'm not sure if your Daddy will be willing to give you away ;)

I hope you marvel at the life that you will someday create and watch in awe as they grow, as I have had the privilege of watching you. I hope the snuggles and cuddles bring happy tears to your eyes - like the ones your sap of a Mommy is crying right now, as she writes this.

But most importantly I hope that all the pain you will unfortunately {yet inevitably} experience over the course of your life turns you into a strong, compassionate, and resilient woman. I wish I could protect you from all harm that comes your way - and I will certainly try my best to do so. Just know that no matter what happens, I will be here to hug, support, and comfort you. Always.

Please stick your tongue out at me like this when you're 30, I beg you
M wrote a similar post a little while back which made me cry. Check out Daddy's hopes for his daughter.

P.S. Tell me, does that giraffe on her onesie not look eerily similar to the giraffe in my blog header?

This week's Toddle Along Tuesday topic is Hopes and Dreams. So link up an old post or a new post...whatever you'd like, so long as it is about what you want for your children. There are no rules, except that you link up a relevant post rather than your whole blog.
