.life lessons.

Am I being a good example for my daughter?

I realized today that she does everything I do.If i put my shoes on she goes &
puts her shoes on.If i want a drink she wants a "dink".
She is a sponge.She repeats everything.
She's only one but she is already learning everything about being a woman from me.
I'm the example she's learning from every minute of the day.
I dont want her to learn from my example to not be happy about yourself or they way you look.
To start smoking bc she sees mommy doing it.to yell bc mommy does it.
to get frustrated easily bc mommy does.to be impatient bc mommy is.........

I just want to show her love.patience.kindness.
I want to give her fun times & happy memories.

Being the mother of a daughter is a heavier burden than I ever realized.
Its not all hairbows,cute clothes & pretty smiles.
Its about teaching her by my example .
She is seeing things through my eyes @ this age &
i want them to be beautiful images.

I agree with everything you wrote. It's not just little girls though. It's every child. I don't think the boys emulate their mommies as much as girls do, but we definitely affect their lives in a strong way. Parents are their children's first & most important teacher.
Our world would be a much better place if people could just take that job more seriously.
