To My Little Girl

Hi baby,

I wanted to talk to you about something personal that I know you are going to ask questions about when you can understand the concept of the world. I know you are going to wonder why me and your dad aren’t together anymore despite all the plans, hopes and dreams we had. I know deep down you may think it’s because we had you and please don’t ever think that.

Your daddy and I may not see eye to eye anymore but we both agree that you are the best thing that ever happened to us. Our lives changed forever the day I found out I was pregnant with you. Our lives continue to change but our love only grows for you.

I know when you’re in your teens you will most likely blame me or him for not trying hard enough and I wish I could give you a straight answer and I wish I could tell you that we did try. But when that happened both your father and I were in too deep of a hole to ever escape from. We created a toxic world and neither of us wanted you to deal with that or grow up in it.

Looking back at it all now, I’m sure if words had been said rather than screamed at, we may have fixed things. But,

Leaving each other was for the best. It was for you. And I know you will sometimes question or wish that things were different and I will try to understand that but know this, you are and forever will be surrounded by love and people that care for you.

We will always be here for you, no matter what and my love for you will never fade but only grow brighter and brighter.

Love you,

    Being a mom, I can feel each word mentioned in this post. At one point in life, we want to share some thoughts with our kids, but we couldn’t do that. I liked the way you addressed your daughter.
