What I Hope My Daughter Is Like As A Mom

I Hope She's Independent
I didn't get married until I was 33, and I was almost 34 when I had my first baby. I had a lot of experience doing things for myself, and I think that's helped me as a mom, especially when my husband deployed to Afghanistan for a year.

My little one has quite the independent spirit now, so I can see her being a self-sufficient mama who isn't afraid to go her own way.
