Letter to My Child
They say you never know real love till you become a mom. All of us feel a new kind of love and a willingness to do anything for your child when you become a mom. Mother’s day is approaching. It made me think of when I became a mom. I’m lucky enough to have two wonderful boys. On Mother’s Day, this is my letter to my child.
I always knew I wanted to be a mother. It was never a question for me. I babysat my sisters since I was 10 and then babysat for others. I worked at camps and daycares as my part-time job. When you came into the world you made me a mother. You made my dreams come true. From that moment I was forever changed. This was one of the best moments of my life. You mean the world to me.

Letter to my Child: Hopes of a Mother
Being your parent has been one of the greatest gifts in my life. I couldn’t imagine my life without you. You are a strong, capable young boy. You continue to challenge me and teach me things. You’ve always been interesting in learning. I hope to nurture this need. This will help you succeed. I love watching you figure something out and seeing that light in your eyes. Always strive to learn.
“Reach for the moon, even if you fall short you’ll land among the stars.”
My wish for you is that life becomes all that you want it to be. Dream big, fail big, succeed big.
I hope your dreams are large, and your worries small. Never carry more than you can hold. Follow your dreams. If it’s something you want, work to get it. I want you to have everything you hope for. Work hard and stay true to who you are. People along the way will try and knock you down. Be strong. Stand up for what you believe in. You are an incredible person. You continuously make me proud.
Pick your battles in life. Understand what’s important to you. Then fight for it.
Don’t be afraid to take risks, make mistakes. Mistakes help you learn. All of History’s successes have long lists of failures. The important part is that you learn from your mistakes and move on. Don’t let it stop you from what you can achieve.
And while you’re out there getting where you have to go, know I love you. I promise to always be here for you. No matter what you do, I’m here for you. I love you more than you know.
I love you!
Parenting Tip: I recommend making an email for each of your children. We did this. It’s great. We write letters, send pictures and videos. Give the email to close family and friends. Everyone can then write their own letters whenever they want. When your child is older you can give them their email. They will love reading everything their family had to say for all those years.
