When I found out that I was having twin girls, I couldn’t believe it. I was so close to my son who had such an easygoing personality that I didn’t know how I was going to handle TWO girls. I know how much pressure there is put on girls (and women!) and I’m always thinking that I wish they will grow up knowing how amazing they are, how loved they are, and how they can do so much in this world. I’ve written letters to them a few times in the past few year, and I’ll share with you just some of the wishes that I have for Olivia and Evie.
- I wish for you to always have confidence in YOU. Be you and don’t be afraid to show it. You do you, baby.
- I wish for you to be kind and helpful to others.
- I wish for you to be curious and to always want to learn.
- I wish for you to love yourself and know how important YOU are.
- I wish that you will have a life of love and laughter.
- I wish for you to always know how much I love you.
Every night before bed, the girls pick out a book and we snuggle together as we read it. I love having this time with my girls as we can bond over something that we all love to do. That has become such a routine in our life that they will even pack books when we go on trips so we can read them before bedtime. Our most recent favorite is the book My Wish for You by Kathryn Hahn.
My Wish for You
Inspired by the everyday life lessons of raising her own six-year-old daughter, author and actress Kathryn Hahn creates a heartfelt and touching meditation on the inherent power every girl has deep inside herself. Here is a timely and necessary message of the intrinsic importance of being who you are, no matter what the world tells you. To be curious, strong, and vulnerable. To live life on your own terms. To always look for that sparkle!
My Wish for You is an empowering gift for grandmothers and mothers, daughters and friends, to treasure and cherish for years to come.
