I can guarantee i will not do everything perfectly, and that i will be learning along side of you each day, my darlings. however, one thing i will never do is underestimate each of your own unique abilities and characteristics 🌿 this boy of mine. all three of my blessings. my oldest is only 6 and from the start people have taken credit for “knowing” why each of them are the way they are. for example, “he doesn’t talk because he has other’s do it for him” or “he’s the oldest, so that’s why he is so competitive and has to be first.” both of these statements are about my oldest son.🤦🏻♀️ then there’s, “she’s a mini you so where do you think she gets it from?!” or “yeah, she is just so stubborn and needs to let go of control.” some examples about my daughter - she’s only four!😳 okay, okay, a couple more examples for entertainment. disclaimer: these are the ones that drive me the most crazy. “he is the baby so that’s why he is so smart and doing everything early.”😤 i do not believe in “birth order,” or any other over analytical, nurturing bs. besides it being statistically proven to not be consistent, therefore not real, i know in my heart that each of us were created perfectly as individuals. and that although nature versus nurture does come into play somewhat, we are still who we are regardless. no one can take credit for my children’s abilities and successes but themselves. i am here to protect and guide them, love them and nurture them the best to my abilities, but they are their own beautiful souls because of them. no one else. so, my boy in this picture. my 18-month-old who is his brother and sister’s best bud and mini comedian. there is no reason as to why this gorgeous boy of mine is wild, independent, adventurous, crazy intelligent, and mischievous, doing every thing “early” other than the fact that this is just who he is. he is a fiery leo with an old soul ready to brighten this world, and he just can’t wait to do everything he’s meant to do. 🧡 also, he’s in full-on toddler mode now, so send help.
