I love my kids. Pretty much everything I do revolves around them. Anytime I do something, I’m wondering how it will affect them. This blog for example. I was so scared to start it. I have no writing experience, I’m technically challenged, my heart goes crazy when I hit publish because I worry it’s too long, too short, not exciting or funny enough. But I told my kids about it when I started getting the ball rolling. So, I had to follow through with it so they saw I wasn’t a quitter. And sometimes change, although scary, can be good.
I want what is best for my boogers, as any parent. I often wonder what they will choose to be when they grow up. And I just hope that we have given them enough guidance to make good choices and hopefully make even a small difference in this crazy world. I often think of things or “wishes” I have for my kids so I decided to list them and I’d thought I’d share them with you guys.
My 10 wishes for my kiddos:
- To know” right from wrong” and be ok with going with “right” even if their friends don’t.
- To find those couple of friends, whether it is 1 good one or 3-4 good ones, that will stick up for them, be kind and like them for who they are.
- To know that even when we fight or punish, they are still loved by mom and dad.
- To look back as adults and see all the good in our family and even though we weren’t perfect, we were still awesome.
- For them to see their weirdness or quirks as positives and not flaws.
- To be able to stick up for the “less popular” or “weird” kids and show them kindness.
- To know that even when things seem bad with friends or school or life in general, this too shall pass. They will get through it.
- To know that once they are grown, “statuses” and “likes” are not important. Self worth and self love are important.
- To understand moderation in most anything…food, drink, money spent, time spent, and many other life things. Less is more.
- Confidence. Confidence in their choices. Confidence in themselves. Confidence in their opinions.
Some of these may change as they get older. I could probably add more. But this is the gist of what I wish for my kiddos at this moment in time.
Sorry for such a serious post, but sometimes life is serious yo. Ok. I’m done adulting for today. What wishes do you have for your kids? Are they similar to mine? Can you name a few more?
Until next time….
