I like to think that when Ruby was born she had a few fairy godmothers around her (the ones we don’t see) ad they all blessed her with all qualities a human being can have and they gave her luck, wisdom, health and love and above all happiness throughout all her life.
The minute I held her for the first time I knew one thing and one thing only: I knew what it means to be complete. That was the most amazing day of my life and nothing can beat that. But I knew something else. I knew exactly what wishes I had for her. I stared at her. So innocent, so small and precious. I stared and whispered in her ear: “You will change the world my love. ” The thing is I didn’t say it because of the adrenaline. I did it because I believed in it and I still do. Every time she is in my arms half asleep I tell her the same thing over and over again and she smiles like she knows what I am talking about. It is our secret and ours only. Maybe the fairy godmothers know as well. It is what I wish for her. I want her to be better than I am, to make the world a wonderful place and to learn how not to be selfish. I want her to be brave and stand up for herself, to believe in herself, to be the change she wants to see in the world. I want her to travel around the world and back, to meet people and have adventures, to know cultures and be cultured. I wish for her more than I ever wished for myself. I want her to have all that she wants but grow up not be a selfish brat. I want her to win the Nobel Prize, to be creative, to be an artist in all its glory, to be the best of whatever she chooses to be. I want her to be a good friend and have good friends. I want her to learn what loyalty is and be loyal, I want her to learn how not to judge people, how not to be racist or mean and how not to hate.
I wish for my daughter to know that nobody – girl or boy – can make you as happy as you can make yourself. I wish for her to be determined, to be fair and ambitious and to use all these for the greater good. I wish for my child to love and respect her family, to be there for her family and be best friends with her brother or sister (if mummy decides on giving her one).
I wish for Ruby to believe in herself and know that the sky is the limit. Know that we can’t always get what we want but we can damn try before giving up. I want her to know that the beauty of your soul is more important than the beauty of your body. I want her to know that money don’t make you happy but love and honesty do.
I wish my baby will live her life with a smile on her face and have a positive attitude even in the hardest of days. I wish she will learn that we can’t be happy every day but no matter what life throws at us we are stronger and stronger.
I want her to know that when she was born daddy decided it’s Rapunzel time so we would lock her in a tower and let her see the world when she would be 35. And than he decided our baby will be a nun and she would meet no boys also until she will turn 35. But know this was only out of that feeling of protection you have as a parent.
I wish she will learn how to say NO when it’s the case and how to stand up for herself. I wish my child will know how to ask for help in need and not try to face hard times on her own.
I want her to learn how to love spending alone time. I want her to love herself so she can be as loved as she deserves to. I want her to always know what she wants and go for it even if the odds are against her. I want her to know that nothing is impossible.
I want her to never lose her innocence. To always be young at heart and to enjoy life as we only live once.
I want my baby to know that I have done everything in my power to raise her right and I tried to be the best mum in the world.
On a more realistic note, a near future wish would be for my baby to learn how to sleep through the night. I also wish for her to like school, be healthy, listen to me and never be shy. I want her to respect a curfew and eat all her veggies. I want her not to follow my example and eat an entire chocolate in two minutes. I want her to learn how to tie her shoe laces and brush her teeth. I want her to have a sense of fashion in her and be creative as a child.
But most of all I want her to forever be my tiny little human.
