I remember constantly watching over you as a baby. How each day you seemed to learn something new, even though you were just a baby. Slowly but surely, you were getting closer to saying your first word.

How beautiful it was to watch you learn how to crawl, and finally say “momma”. You finally learned how to say my name!

How all of a sudden, it felt like you went from taking your first steps to learning how to tie your own shoes, all in the course of a few months. Today I’m teaming up withCenter for Parent and Teen Communication (CPTC) to share a special article written by Ken Ginsburg called Remember the Best In Your Child and See it in your Teen. You can also watch the video below.


How lovely it is to watch you talk to your friends for hours. It lets me know that there are other people in this world who think you’re just as incredible as I know you are.

It’s incredible to know that even though you’re just a little girl, you’re starting to form your own opinions, and we actually share so much!

How you confide in me and ask me questions, which let me know that I must be doing something right if you feel like you can trust me.

I’ll never get over the explosion of joy over watching you learn how to ride a bike. Soon enough, I’ll be driving you to the DMV to get your driver’s license. Hopefully, time stands still a little longer, because I’m enjoying every minute of being your teacher.
