A Few of My Daughter's Favorite Things {2014}


Since starting this blog, I've posted a list of my daughter's current favorites each year. {2012 // 2013} She really enjoys sitting down with me to tell me about all the things she's enjoying, and loves sharing it with you and seeing your feedback. It is a beautiful thing to have these posts to look back on — not only for me, but for her as well! Hopefully she will look my blog up someday and smile as she looks back on her childhood.

With that said, I'm challenging myself to see how creative I can be with these posts. Should I begin with a letter to her? Should I continue with posting the list and following with a letter? I'm sure I'll get it right one day, but it's more likely this post will evolve as she does. For example, this year I thought it would be fun to design the list as a printable. {She's been encouraging me to make more for her own enjoyment.} You'll have to let me know what you think, and if you'd like me to provide this as a downloadable printable for you to fill out with your children.

On with the good stuff! {Click the list for a larger view.}

A Few of My Daughter's Favorite Things {2014} — a Modern Mrs.
Dear L,

Mommy is very proud of you! You are growing up to be a wonderful young lady! You're a good friend, kind to everyone, loving, and becoming more mature as the days go by. You're an amazing help to Mommy these days, and I know you'll be a fantastic big sister when E arrives!

I'm very much looking forward to your last day of school tomorrow. We're going to have so much fun this summer! I'm excited to sit down with you to create our "Summer Bucket List," and I'm even more excited to begin checking off the list. I can only imagine what you'll come up with. The next two months will be an amazing time for us as we spend this priceless quality time together.

I must admit, I sometimes get sad when I think you won't be my only child anymore. Please don't misunderstand me, I'm very excited to be having E, and I wouldn't change one thing about our lives, but it has been just you and I for so long now... I worry over how you'll adjust to the monumental change. However, as I said, you're mature, and I know you'll understand if I have to devote my attention to E at times and not to you. I'm sure you'll impress me with regard to this. Just know that you will always hold a special place in my heart. While I may have more children, even daughters, you are my first-born child, and no one could ever replace you. I promise to love both you and E equally, and to always find time for one-on-one time with you.

Keep reading, playing, loving, and growing, but don't try to grow up too fast. That time will surely come before you know it. Promise you'll take life one day at a time and to keep enjoying the little things. Keep trying your best in school — fourth grade will be a challenge, but I know you'll succeed.

Loving you always,
