Thank You For Making Me Mommy

Dear Daughter,

Today we celebrate Mother's Day for the third time. Today is mostly about mothers, but I think you should get some recognition too. Without you, I wouldn't be a mother.

Wishing you a happy Mother's Day!
I want to thank you for putting up with me as I fumble my way through this thing called motherhood. There is no instruction manual. I know I have made mistakes and will make more. Just know I am doing the best I can.

Thank you for your laughs that fill my ears with joy and hugs that fill my soul. Few things are better than hearing you call for "Mommy" or asking me to watch your latest trick.

She decorated a cake for me!

Thank you for being a little sad when I leave you at daycare to go to work. Thank you for also being a little sad when I pick you up. It makes me feel better to know you have a good time while I am gone. 

Today I want to thank you for letting me show you the world and for showing me a whole new way to look at the world. Exploring the world with you is a lot of fun.
So many places I would like to show you.

This will be the only car
she is driving for a while

Thank you for making me a Mommy.

Love always,
