When I dreamed of some day having babies of my own I always "assumed" I would have boys. Don't ask me why. I truly have no idea. I just always assumed that was how my life would be. As life would have it, it has been the complete opposite. I have two beautiful, vibrant daughters that make life an adventure each and EVERY single day.
Literally, every single day has some kind of an adventure! Making slime, putting on make up, playing in the cattle yard, dressing cats up as babies, building forts, baking cupcakes, screaming bloody murder at each other, trying on clothes, sewing, playing an ice hockey game with odd sticks, screaming a little more, and making videos. Seriously, the list could go on and on.
If I am completely, wholeheartedly honest. They inspire me to be a better human being each and every day! One of them is tender hearted, worries about how others feel, doesn't want others to be left out and is considerate of every person she comes in contact with. The other is literally going mach 10 from the time her feet hit the floor, things roll off of her back like she wears a turtle shell of armor, and while she is kind and has friends she would much rather have time to explore the great outdoors by herself or with a small number of people.
They both teach me so much about how to "mother" each of them differently, but also inspire me to see the world the way they do. Seeing the world through their young eyes is amazing if you really take the time to "see" it.
So happy that God had a different plan and made me a "Girl" mom. 🙂
