They Don’t Brag Enough About A Mama’s Girl — There’s No One Like Her

“They don’t brag enough about a mama’s girl. But if we could see ourselves in our daughter’s eyes, we would see a chicken nugget-slingin’, milkshake-makin’, play-date plannin’ best friend, who never lets her down.

They’re miniature versions of ourselves.

When my daughter displays what I’ve taught her, I see kindness and realness. If those are the affirmations she takes from her mother, then I am proud to say I am doing my job.

She shows compassion and empathy. I am confident, reassured even, this world didn’t make me as hard as I thought it might. She shows me I am powerful, independent, and strong because she is powerful, independent, and strong.

A sweet, sweet mama’s girl will show you who’s boss and hype you up at the same time. When she gets out of the car and she’s forced to hold a hand, 99% of the time she picks mine. I am her safety. How lucky am I? For someone to love me so very much they would always pick me first?

A mama’s girl will gas a mama up. Ain’t nobody out there like your mama. I imagine what a video clip of the inside of her mind would look like: ice cream, unicorns, rainbows, cookies, sweets, treats, and you guessed it… her mom.

I know I can’t always be first. I know we will have seasons. I know she will let parts of me go.

I know even though she is soft and I am soft that some days will be so, so hard.

I know when she’s 14 and angsty, I will laugh at the pictures in her room with an X through the face of her mama, and I’ll be assured I am still doing a good job.

Because even when it’s hard, especially when it’s hard, she’s looking at you. And even when you’re not so sure, you’re always leading her.

No matter what, I will always be beside her. What we take from each other is what we wish for the world: a built-in best friend for life. There’s no one like a mama’s girl.”
