Proudest Mom Ever

Today, I am so proud of my daughter. She wrote in her journal yesterday and shared it with me this morning. I asked her if I could share it with you.

I bought this journal for her 9th birthday in 2008. I bought it as a Mother/Daughter journal. She and I would both write in it back and forth to each other. I forget where I even got the idea from. Anyway, we haven’t written much in it, and for some reason, she picked it up to write in.

Here is her entry, word for word:

I’ve made alot of mistakes but everyone makes mistakes right. For example I made a mistake not writing in this journal for so long. I’ve made a mistake of kicking, slaping and harming my brother. In fact evan when a day can be terrible theres always evan the tinyist thing good about it. You just have to feel good inside and make the best of it. Like tomorrow me and mom are going to sew together. When ever somthing bad happens my mom and dad and somtimes my brother help me through it.

That’s all I want to say + I have to have breakfeast.

This is what I wrote this morning:

Oh, my darling daughter! I am so proud of you!

I am so glad that you see that everyone makes mistakes and has “terrible” days. It is part of life.

Know that I am always, always, always here for you when you need me. You are growing up into such a wonderful, beautiful girl! I love you so much!

Love, Mom

She is truly special, don’t you agree!? 🙂

  1. So great you keep the mother daughter journal. I started one with my kids and somehow, it fell to the wayside. They are now in college. I regret letting it fall away, I missed those moments to put in writing what I might have said. But, in time, we forget conversations. Writing remains.

    1. Hi Elizabeth! It’s never too late to start again, you know! Things like a blog about them and to them is good, or emailing even! I have enjoyed writing to my children, even the older one, and he does read it too! Not always, but sometimes 😉

      Thank you for stopping by today Elizabeth. I really appreciate you taking the time to comment!

    1. Thank you so much Lindsey! She is special! Thanks for the link to your blog! Sounds like you’re a pretty amazing mom!

  2. The honesty, innocence, and sincerity in that message was so touching. Thank you to your daughter and you for sharing it with us.

  3. Awwwww. Your posts always do that! Give me that awwww feeling.

    That small entry in the book, shows a wisdom that will come in so useful in later years.

    Well done you! You are obviously a great Mum.
