I love this!!<< this is TRUE of motherhood, it develops you in a way that is amazing, people can tell you but until you have children yourself, it is just unknown. My children have taught me so much about myself and about life. I am a better person individually because of them!
This is going to be the rules that my kids have while growing up. Know that you are loved. Dream big. Say I love you. Listen to your parents. Try new things. Speak kindly of others. Work hard. Share. Giggle and laugh. Keep your promises. Sing, laugh, dance. Do your best. Clean up after yourself. No whining. Say your prayers.
I dont agree with this at all. I would change it to say: I AM YOUR FRIEND. I will be there for you always. I will go with you to a movie on a Friday night. I will never talk behind your back, or start rumors about you. I will listen to your hopes, dreams, triumphs, frustrations and disappointments. We have a bond for life, not only because I am your parent, but also your friend.
