I decided to link up with Kelly's Korner again about being a mom with all girls. Since my only biological child is a girl, I figured I would link up.
I have no idea what it's like to have blue around a nursery, or not have bows in a baby's hair. My life is filled with more zebra than I can count!
I don't know what it's like to have my little boy shoot pee-pee in my mouth when I am changing his diaper. Or to like trucks and trains better than dolls and "boobies" (Barbies, this word is my favorite).
I don't know what it's like not to have tons of skirts and pantyhose and pink, red and purple in the closet.
I don't know any other way to live, than to watch my 8-pound-nothing daughter melt the hearts of grown men.
I don't know any other way to live than to wish so many things for my little girl. I don't know what it means to want my son to grow up with a respect for women, because all I know is a want for my daughter to grow up respecting herself, knowing that beauty is on the inside, and to love God more than she loves any other man.
I wish every day that no matter how beautiful my daughter is, and will continue to be, that she remembers to be kind to everyone, all the time. To help her know that people remember your kindness more than they will ever remember your beauty.
I pray constantly and hope above all hopes that she makes mistakes (but not the same ones I did!).
I love being a mom to a little girl. It's heartbreaking, scary, difficult, and WONDERFUL all the time. It's a joy to have her and I couldn't imagine it any other way!
