The thought of being a parent has always completely overwhelmed me.
But not in the way you'd think. I'm not anxious about my future as a parent, I'm not scared to be responsible for little lives. I'm the complete opposite. I'm so entirely excited to become a mom, I can't wait.
Now, in no way will I ever be a perfect mom. Even referring to myself as a ‘mom’ at all sounds so far off to me. But for you, the children I’ll have one day, I promise I’ll do anything.
I can’t promise an extravagant lifestyle or that it will all be easy. I can’t tell you I’ll never make you angry or be the reason you cry. As much as I wish I could promise you a picture-perfect life, I know what's realistic and whats not.
Little things go a long way, and there are so many valuable lessons I promise to engrave into our life together.
You’ll never feel unloved. Because not a day will go by without hugs, kisses, and ‘I love you’s’.
I’ll be your biggest fan, and your toughest critic. I won’t be afraid to tell you when you screw up but I’ll also be the first one to make sure you know when you did something right.
You will never have to think twice about trusting me. I believe that every good relationship is built off of trust, ours will be no different.
I'll make sure your needs always come before mine. I’ll dread the day I have to tell you ‘no’ to something you want and deserve.
Your world will be an open door of opportunity. I never want you to feel like you missed out on a chance to do something.
I will always give you advice. It might not always be what you want to hear, but your best interest will always be my priority.
Your opinion will always be valued. No matter how young or old you are. What you have to say will always be important to me.
I’ll cherish every minute with you. Time moves fast, and the last thing I ever want is to feel like I missed out on any part of your life.
My whole world will revolve around you in the center. When its time to, I’ll be willing to give up my own life to be able to make a beautiful one for you.
Nothing will ever be the same once you are born.
Although I’m not quite ready yet, just know that once I am, I’ll be fully devoted to loving you. Until then, I’ll be living a life that one day I’ll be telling you all about. I promise to make it meaningful, and to live a life you can look up to.
You already have my heart.
