As Your Mother I Promise...

As your mother I promise:

To slow down and be present, because I know that you will grow up faster than I can imagine, and I can't imagine missing a thing!

That you will grow up in a loving home where daddy and mommy assure you and each other of the love that we feel.

That you will always have your family to fall back on in times of hardship, not to cure your troubles, but console you until you learn the lesson you are there to learn.

As your mother I promise:

That I will raise you to be a caring human being.You will blessed in life and it is our mission to give back as much as we receive.

That I will never make my mistakes your life conditions. Mommy isn't perfect, but you will never have to live in the midst of my mess-ups.

That I will be there as your cheerleader through every triumph in your life! If not in presence, in heart.

As your mother I promise:

To make it my mission to let you will know how much you are loved.

To love your daddy with all my heart and tell him 'I love you' as often as I tell you, because I know that we are your first example of what love is and I want to set a beautiful one!

To color with you, dance with you, play dolls with you, lay with you, learn with you, and experience life all over again through your eyes.

As your mother I promise:

That I will try to follow through and be your friend, but more than anything I will be your mother and I will raise you be a better version of what I aspire to be, not in pushing my dreams on you, but pushing you to pursue your dreams.

To remember that you are your own unique person and not a mini me!

To show you by example, how to be a good friend.

As your mother I promise:

To make good on my word.

To be open-minded and open-hearted.

To let go of my serious side when you want to laugh, and not to laugh when you are being serious.

As your mother I promise you London, I will love you unconditionally and be an active voice of inspiration and encouragement throughout your life.
