The Pledge:)

Hand over heart …

I will do everything in my power to compare my girl only to … my girl.

I will recognize the staggering progress that she has made, and that recognition will be unsullied by … anything.

I will enjoy the time with my child, seeing what she does in school every day … and not worrying about what she doesn’t do.

I will congratulate her for all of her hard work and the wonder of all that she has accomplished because of it.

I will celebrate my incredible child for all that she is and revel in my overwhelming luck in being her Mama.

Amen.

When I first started taking me son to preschool parents would try to talk to him in the cloak room and then would comment “he is so shy.” When he started kindergarten and was integrated into a regular classroom with indirect support more questions came but from his classmates. “Why doesn’t he talk? Why doesn’t he speak? When will the say something to me? I have had some great folks in my life that told me to concentrate on what he CAN do and not what everyone EXPECTS him to do. He will get there in his own way and sometimes will make his own path.

DIARY OF A MOM wrote this wonderful pledge on her blog and I wanted to share it here on my blog. Thank you Jess:)
