Your dad and I just celebrated our second year wedding anniversary last October 7. I’ve always believed that I lucked out when I met your father. I didn’t think I would be given, nor did I deserve to have someone like your father. I’ve never had, as your father would term it, EMPATHY for those other guys who showed interest in me back in high school and college. I thought I’d have my karma and get hurt by a boy someday.
Who would have thought that I’d have the “perfect” life. Ask your aunts. They will tell you how I was the last person in the group they’d think would end up falling in love, getting married and having a baby. The perfect life to others. For me, a BIG blessing. We have a blessed life, Light.
Someday, you will find a boy who will peek your interest. You will develop crush(es). You will FALL IN LOVE. One day, you will no longer be our baby girl. I’m okay with that. When that time comes, I just want you to remember these things.
- Know that I want you to have a full life, and yes, that includes your love life. I might be a little strict when it comes to boys and it may sometimes feel like I don’t want you to meet anyone, but it’s just me being a protective mom. That will never change no matter what age you are.
- I will learn to let you go, even though it’s hard. I will feel sad knowing that we are no longer the center of your life. But I am confident that this new person, this MAN, is deserving of you. That we have taught you well enough to have found a person who respects and loves you the way we do.
- Whenever you have doubts about your relationship, look at me and your father. See how your father loves and commits to me. See how your father takes care of me, and make our relationship your guide. Relationships will never be perfect, but your dad and I are a team, and we work beautifully together. He makes life easy for me and I’d like to believe that I make life easy for him. Because of that, we have a “perfect” relationship. I want that for you.
- Your dad and I have been there and have done that. There are no new tricks when it comes to relationships. So, talk to us. Don’t lie. Don’t hide. We will (try to) understand (if it seems like we don’t, just show us this post ^_^). Anyway, we will always know when something’s up. 😛
Love, in my opinion, is easy. It shouldn’t be difficult. It shouldn’t be painful. Always remember that we have taken care of you, made sure that no harm comes your way and have protected you with our lives. This guy, this MAN, better do the same thing for you.
