My beautiful little girl.
Oh how I am going to miss glancing over to see that wide-eyed smile,
Hearing you “talk” to your toys,
And comforting you after you get upset.
I know I am going to miss out on so many of the little things in your day-to-day life.
I hope to not miss too many of the big ones,
And mostly I hope you don’t ever miss me.
With so many new adventures, new faces, and new smiles
I hope you forget to miss me.
But I still want you to want your Momma.
I promise I’m not doing this because I need a break.
I’m not doing this because I don’t want to be with you little girl.
I want more for you.
Your Daddy and I want you to run barefoot in your backyard.
We want to you smile and run down that soccer field.
Most of all we want you to be a strong, confident, beautiful young lady.
Momma hopes to set this example for you by working.
I hope you learn that you can have it all in your life.
I love you beautiful girl.
Smile for me when I get home.
