Tonight when it was Miss E's bed time, we sat on the bed and had a real conversation. We talked for probably a good 45 minutes about everything from how the Easter Bunny had left her a basket at our house & Grammie's house to how much she loves dance to what she wants to be when she grows up. That's right, my 27 month old told me tonight that she wants to be a doctor. I have no idea where that came from, but I love it. I love everything about her and that is no exaggeration. I am so unbelievably blessed to be this awesome little girl's momma. I never imagined that I could unconditionally love someone with all of my existence.
I wish I could freeze time and keep her this age. Don't get me wrong, I love watching her grow and I look forward to seeing who she becomes. But there is something so special about toddlers. They are so pure hearted and innocent. She looks at the world and everything around her and see's nothing but good. When she see's someone, she doesn't see color or race or sex, she just see's a person that could potentially be a friend or someone to play with. She loves unconditionally as well. She doesn't care what anyone looks like, how much they weight, what their hair color is, etc. There is no hate in her heart, just pure innocence. I envy that in her and want her to hold on to that forever. I would love to see the world through her eyes for just a day.
Having her has really changed me a lot. I don't look at things the way I used to and I have become a lot more tolerant of things because that's how I want her to be. I want her to be a good person. A non judgmental woman of God. I want her to be accepting and caring. I have such high hopes for her and I pray for her every night.
I am so proud of that little girl and the person that she is becoming. No, she hasn't had to overcome any hurtles such as a language or developmental delay, but that doesn't make me any less proud of who she is and what she accomplishes every day. She works hard and is so smart. I can't wait to see what awesome things that God has in store for her.
