Well, we’ve done a lot of great things with her, like take her to the zoo, visited a museum, gone to lapsits at the library, and held playdates. And we’re in the process of giving her a little sister.
I still want to remember to have plenty of tea parties and picnics, and above all, let both of these little girls know how loved they are and that I’ve waited my entire life to give them everything I have.
I want to remember to get her a goldfish, take her to the beach, and give her at least one sibling. She’s only 8 weeks old tomorrow, so I’ll be listing fun things like these under this goal to help me remember all the things I want to do with and for her.
I know the hubby and I won’t hear the pitter patter of little feet any time soon (at least not for nine months…= P), but I so want to be a good mommy. Already I’m amazingly in love with these little people that I haven’t met and that don’t even exist yet. How crazy is that?
Anyway, there are little things from my childhood that I don’t want my kids to miss out on. Things that my mom made so much fun for my brother and me – like hopscotch, couch cushion forts, and mixing corn starch, water, and food coloring to make this goopy pile of fun. If I forget to do these things with my kids I will be a total failure = )
This is a long term-goal as well. I don’t have children, but can’t wait to start a family!! Once my fiance and I are totally prepared to become parents I will devote every fiber of my being to creating a healthy, happy environment for my children. I couldn’t let myself do anything less than completely support them in everything they want to do and stay as patient as possible.
