I remember when Logan was born. We didn't find out the sex of our babies either time. So, I had no idea that Logan was going to be a boy. I was of course happy about having a boy. You know what everyone says, "As long as it's healthy". That little boy became the love of my life. And the nurse in the hospital told me "Little boys turn into big boys who always take care of their mother." But, I always remember this quote:
"A son is a son until he takes a wife, but a daughter is your daughter for all her life"
And some part of me thinks that quote is true. And truthfully, I don't think many people like "momma's boys", so maybe it just needs to be true! So, some part of me always wanted a daughter. I don't know why I think that if Logan has kids, I won't ever see them. I just feel like girls are closer to their own mothers most of the time than they are to their mother-in-laws. Makes sense, right? So, if he ever has kids, his wife will probably want help from her side of the family. I know it sounds absolutely absurd. But, that's just the way I was thinking when I first had Logan.
Actually, I really hope that I have a close relationship with any of the people that my kids decide to marry. Family is very important to me and I hope that we can all have a close bond.
Nevertheless, I was very happy when Jaycee was born and they told me it was a girl. I actually asked them, "Are you sure?". Because I really thought I was having another boy. As soon as they told me, I had visions of pink, pink and more pink. I'm a girlie girl. I dreamed of all the days we'd spend doing girlie things.
Although right now, she tells me she hates me about as much as she spends time hugging me. Every time I don't let her have a cookie or whatever she wants at any given second, I'm the "worst mommy in the world". We ALL know that that's just karma coming around to bite me! I used to scream the same words at my mom. I was absolutely rotten to her! So, Jaycee is just karma's way of saying, "Haha". But, I know Jaycee loves me. She is constantly giving me hugs and drawing pictures of us holding hands.
When I saw this on Pinterest the other day, I had to Pin it. I LOVE this quote!!
Here is a picture of me and my future best friend while we were on vacation. This was the last day when we went shopping with Nana. That was the day we got our matching beach dresses.
I'm very blessed that I actually get to see MY mom this weekend! Yay!! She'll be flying in to spend the weekend with us. We're so excited that we'll get to spend some time with her one on one. When I still lived at home, my mom and I had a standing lunch date every week. It didn't matter what I did, or where I was on Sunday night, I always managed to make my way home in time for our lunch date on Monday. My best friend actually told me, "You'll never leave home, you wouldn't be able to miss your lunch dates with your mom!" I wish I was closer to home so that I could have those lunch dates. We'll just have to cram it all into one weekend!
Do you have daughter(s)?
