A Letter to my Zoe

Sweet girl of mine.

Today you start "school" and my heart is both broken and oh so proud.

3 years and 9 months of me and you learning.

Both of us learning how to be better humans.

With timeouts, deep breaths, re direction, messes, crafts and recipes.

We have been besties (and now the three amigas).

I feel so beyond blessed.

So over filled with love that I got to experience, teach, mold and love on you whenever I wanted.

Because even those REALLY hard moments were a privilege and I know that.

Today you will make friends that I do not know.

You will have memories and learn things that I was not there for.

You'll do crafts and painting and have booboos kissed with someone else other than me.

And baby girl those things kind of scare me but.

I know I have taught you to be kind.

To take breaks from the crowd when you need them.

To ask for a hug when you need them because hugs always help.

I have taught you to be brave and to always include someone that looks sad.

I have taught you to be respectful with please and thank you's and don't forget excuse me's too.

I have taught you to hold a hand when you feel frightened.

To smile when you are happy.

And that it's ok to cry when you are not.

I have taught you so much in our short time but the best part is.

That all of it was just the beginning.

You will learn so much more.

But promise me one thing: you will teach me.

Promise to share the best and worse part of your day.

And I promise to listen.

I promise to soak up all of these moments because this scary thing called time is just slipping by us.

Oh my sweet girl all I wish for you are the best of best things.

And remember what we have been learning about lately,

Every one is different and that is ok, it's actually amazing.

Love with always win, no matter what, even if it doesn't seem like it.

ALWAYS use your manners and GF please remember to share.

Your two amigas will be the first ones waiting at pick up.

Oh and one more thing. Don't ever forget how much I love you. But in case you do.

I love you to the moon and back, more than all the stars. I love you big. Bigger than big.

Love, hugs and besos.

Your mama.
