As mothers, we want our little ones to be happy, healthy, and safe. We want them to experience the best life has to offer without being exposed to the worst. We want them to experience the warmth of sunshine, without getting caught in any horrible storms. It’s understandable. They are our babies, and our main responsibility is to protect them.
Do you miss the ’80s? I sure do. Yeah, I was just a kid, but it was a magical time. Fashion was funky fresh (do people still say that?), and the music was incredible. Even as a child I was able to appreciate what the pop stars of the ’80s did with their talent.
My sweetest little girl,
I have mixed emotions this week as you turn 2. I am excited because I see how much you’ve grown, and I know so many magical moments await you. I can’t wait to have conversations with you about life and answer all of your questions about hair, careers, clothes, and anything else you want to know. But, I must admit, I am kind of sad. You are growing up so fast and there are no longer any babies in my home. The baby days are gone.
