Instilling Confidence by guest Emily Jackson

July 9, 2013

Emily is a girl after my own fashion loving heart. She has this ability to nail every look she puts together and has impeccable taste. She also happens to be an incredible mother to little Capri. So thankful to her for being here to share what so many of us mothers can relate too…getting our children ready for the world.

My life changed forever on the day that my husband and I welcomed our sweet little girl, Capri, to our family. I remember it like it was yesterday! We went in for a routine check-up and were told that our Capri was not going to wait any longer, she wanted to meet her mom and dad three weeks earlier than expected:) As you can imagine, going in for a check-up and being told on the spot that you will be having your baby within the next couple of hours was a little overwhelming for a first-time mom! I didn’t get to hold her for over 6 hours as she spent some time in the NICU, but when I finally did, it was well worth the wait! Since then, I feel that I haven’t really let her go, and I don’t plan to anytime soon:)

Today, Capri is the life of every party and it is so much fun watching her little personality begin to develop! As she grows, so does my role as a mother in her life. All parents wish that they could give the moon and stars to their children, and we try to do everything we can to help them avoid hard times, scrapes on their knees, and bumps on their heads. Sadly, we can’t always be there to protect them from everything, so I hope to instill in Capri the ability to stay confident and happy while facing the challenges that she is sure to come across in her life. This still isn’t an easy thing for her mom to do, so I will be learning along the way as well:)
