dear future kids,
you are literally going to be the center of my universe. I know the second I lay eyes on you I’ll fall in love in a way I’ve never felt before. I promise to be the best mommy that I possibly can be. I promise to make the monsters go away, and get you ice cream every time the ice cream man comes around, but only if you finish dinner. I promise to take silly pictures on your first day of school and tuck you in every night. I promise to sing your favorite songs no matter how many times I’ve heard them and how much they annoy me. I promise to be there for you. I promise that as you grow up I will be a person you can come to, not a friend who’s eventually going to leave you for a stupid boyfriend or when things get too hard. I promise to never let your possible suffering go unnoticed. I promise to give you “us” days where me, you and momma can sit home and take a day to ourselves. I promise you get to pick the movie and the lunch every time. I promise to let you be yourself. I promise to let you wear pink fluffy dresses if you want to one day, and khakis with a polo the next if you so please. I promise to encourage a healthy lifestyle. I promise to be your biggest supporter, your biggest advocate, your biggest fan, and one of your best friends. I promise to love you with everything in me. I promise you, I will do everything possible to keep you safe, happy and healthy. I never want to be the mom who ignores her child’s sadness or suffering. I will be the best version of me, all for you.
