Throughout my posts, there have been a lot of positive comments about my relationship with my daughter.
My Raven is my biggest treasure, my pride and joy. There are many times when I wish I had taken a different path when I found myself at life’s crossroads. I backtrack on that thought very quickly because it would lead me to a life without her.
She was a healthy and fun baby and achieved her milestones extremely early. By the time she was one, she spoke full sentences. By the time she was two, she was able to hold a proper conversation with an adult.
She never ‘babytalked’. Every time someone tried to ‘babytalk’ to her she looked at them as if asking ‘are you normal?’ I thought it was hilarious!
So it comes as no surprise to me that she is so mature and focused now. She does great in school and is in advanced study groups for Grammar and Maths, among others.
She faces her parents marriage struggles with an understanding beyond her years and I often feel guilty that I put so much weight on her young shoulders. When she reads this, I’m sure she’s going to complain that I even mentioned she’s too young for this. She has done it before.
She has even dished out advice for school friends who were upset about their parents’ marriages breaking down. You would think she’s a 30 year old woman when she talks.
Her thoughts are very clear. She is very straight forward and that comes from her. She is her own person and she is my friend. I’m just around to guide her through life and be a mom when she needs me to be.
I am extremely proud of our relationship and how we have no barriers and no secrets. She says she loves how I respect her opinions and how I listen to her. I love her more than anything in the world and I want to always be there for her when she needs me.
I want to always have with her the relationship I wished I had with my mother all my life.
