What I Want For Mother's Day

Dear Daughter:

I guess the easy answer for saying what I want for Mother’s Day is that I would love a big fat nap. But beyond that, from the depths of my heart, what I want for Mother’s Day and any other day, is knowing that I have helped you be your best self. I want to know that you are enjoying life to the fullest, and showing this world that you are so capable, even if you have an extra copy of a chromosome.




It doesn’t bother me that you took a while longer to learn to walk. I am mostly proud of the ways that you have learned to enjoy the small things, like making a duck out of Play-Doh, and playing flashcards with mommy. I want you to know that although the world says that you can’t do many things, that the smaller microcosm of the community around you is cheering for you so hard. 

When I post things on social media, our friends notice the little things about you like how you roll up your sleeves before you set yourself to a task, or how you fold your little hands in your lap and giggle when you are so proud of yourself. I am beyond thankful for people who believe in what you can do, and who teach their children to include you and see all that you have to offer.  The fact that your whole classroom clapped for you when you took successive steps all by yourself is testament to what the world can be if we all cheered for each other more often. 







You are definitely enjoying life right now as you sort your plastic vegetables by color into their respective buckets. You are yelling "pepper" and "apple," and looking so pleased with yourself!  I just high fived you after you sorted them all for the second time. You are on your third time now of sorting the vegetables, and I am all for that, because you are capable. I love you my daughter, and I am proud to be your mama. 

Love, 

Your Proud Mama
