Today I visited Brilliant Sky Toys and Books and bought you your first official stuffed animal from Mommy and me.
For a few months now, we’ve had our eyes on this particular Jelly Cat bunny with a flower design for its ears: Blossom Bunny Posey.
It instantly made us think you; not overly dainty and princess-essy, but instead; sweet, eclectic, and understated.
I could be wrong, but that’s how I see you: sweet, eclectic, and understated.
The question: What kind of little girl will you be?
It’s something I think about constantly. Here’s my thought process so far…
Mommy is obviously beautiful, classy, and diligent in all she does. I know you will be like her in those ways.
Your brother Jack is creative, intelligent, and independent.
As for me, I am innovative, good at communication but horrible at math, and charming in an old-world sort of way.
We are the family you are being born into.
Over the next couple of years, you will develop your personality based on and around us.
I see you as artsy. I don’t see you as someone who demands attention. People will be drawn to you because you will be confident in who you are.
Something I assure you of as your Daddy is that I will instill that confidence in you, every day.
You will know you are beautiful. You will know you are loved. You will hear these things from me every day.
That’s one of my roles as your Daddy. I take pride in that job.
Granted, I will also brainwash you into believe that Frozen is an asinine movie because the parents locked their daughters in the rooms, not allowing them to communicate just because they were different.
Therefore, I will celebrate with you the better Disney girl movie choice, Inside Out. It demonstrates how good parents raise their daughters; from an emotionally intelligent perspective.
Yeah, your Daddy’s going to be a little bit different… maybe even a little bit kooky. But you’ll never have to wonder about my love for you.
