“Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on the earth, for what they believe is what they will become.” –Brooke Hampton
Throughout the day I speak to my daughter as if she understands everything I’m telling her. From when I greet her in the morning to when I’m changing her, bathing her or taking her on a walk-I’m always talking to her. I’ve been telling her these powerful words since before she was born, when she was just a blueberry in my tummy. I fed my mind positive thoughts and let those thoughts fill my heart and belly. And every night since she was born I tell her the below when I lay her down to go to sleep.
· We love you Milly. Mommy loves you. Daddy loves you. Jesus loves you. Everybody loves you. (Sometimes I go down the list of all of our family & friends that love her).
· You are the sweetest little girl in the whole world.
· I love being your Mama.
· You are such a happy baby.
· You are kind and nice and smart. You are so smart, baby girl.
· You are generous and helpful and such a good friend.
· You have already changed the world and one day you will move mountains.
· You are good at everything you put your mind to. You can do anything baby girl.
· You are confident and powerful. You are brave and courageous.
· You are amazing Milly. Your nickname is “@LittleAmazing” because you’re amazing just like Daddy.
· We are so grateful for you. You are the best part of us. We are so glad God chose us to be your parents.
· You are safe, lovey. Mommy is here and Daddy is here. We are right here beside you. We will always be here for you. We love you so much. You are so deeply loved.
· I can’t wait to spend time with you tomorrow. You are my favorite part of the day.
· Good night my Love. Sleep well. Have sweet dreams.
· We love you Milly. Mommy loves you. Daddy loves you. Jesus loves you.
Putting Milly to bed at night is some of my favorite time with her because I know I am teaching my daughter how to empower herself and I’m filling her mind with positive thoughts. If you don’t already, I really encourage you to create your own affirmations for yourself and/or your child. What will you say? What do you want them to be? I’d love to know what you come up with.
