I have so many wishes for my daughter – specifically there are so many adventures that I hope she gets to experience! You know, the things that I never had a chance to do in my life.
Make no mistake. I’m someone who loves to travel and is always up for a great adventure. Because of this, I hope that my daughter grows up holding onto those desires s well.
I want her to wake up every morning and take the day by the horns and shout, “Today will be a great one!” After all, we all get one go around, right?
That’s why, no matter where we go, my husband and I make sure to include something exciting for the entire family. Sure, trips can be relaxing and easy… but those aren’t the ones we tend to opt for. Throughout the years, my daughter and her brothers have had the chance to experience some pretty neat things.
10 Wishes For My Daughter: Adventures I Hope She Experiences
This summer, when we visited Malta in Europe, my children dove into the Mediterranean Sea over and over again without thinking twice. We also tackled our second Color Vibe 5K as a family. This is always an event that we look forward to because we get SO MESSY and the kids LOVE IT.
I love that my children have spirit. They love to have fun and be playful and they have a true love of family. We love to do things together as a family unit. Our team name was the “Sweeney Squad” and the kids just loved it!
Allowing my daughter to canoe alone with her friend while away at Girl Scout Camp was a test for the both of us! But she loved every second of it. Nature adventures are absolutely the most memorable.
And nothing can take away our fond memories of surfing as a family this spring out in Montauk. Our very first attempt and the children both got up on their boards without any issue! Me on the other hand? Not so much. LOL!
One of the biggest wishes for my daughter is for her to live a life of confidence and she showed that this year as she performed on stage several times with her friends. Singing her heart out in front of hundreds of guests without breaking a sweat? Man! What an experience! She made me so proud – over and over again.
So, what am I hoping to experience with her now that we are heading into back to school season and beyond? What are my top ten wishes for my daughter? I have so many more line items I want to complete!
