I hope I raise children who…

The best part of motherhood is being a role model to my children. Having children made me a better person because I want them to be role models. I hope I raise children who say “thank you” and “please”. I hope I raise children who lose graciously and win without bragging. I hope they learn that disappointments are fleeting and so are triumphs but what’s important is that they have a mother who loves them so neither one matter because I am not keeping score. I hope I raise children who are kind to other people. I hope I raise children who realise that life is unfair but that doesn’t mean giving up on it. I hope I raise children who know that they are loved and special but that they are not the centre of the universe and never, ever will be. I hope I raise children who relish life’s tiny pleasures—whether it’s a piece of music, or the colour of a flower. I hope I raise children who are open-minded and curious about the world without being reckless. I hope I raise children who are courageous when sick and grateful when healthy. I hope I raise children who realise that their parents are flawed but love them anyway. I hope for all of these things, but I know this: Being a mother is so much more fulfilling than anything I’ve ever done; nothing can beat nurturing your own creation.

Much love
