I think the most exciting thing about being pregnant is anticipating how many wonderful things I get to teach my child. Teaching how to be compassionate for other beings. Teaching how to celebrate differences. How to be proud of themselves. How to exercise creativity. What unconditional love means.
The thing I keep thinking about is how over everything is that I always, always want this child to have confidence. I want this child to understand the importance of giving back. I always want this child to make their own decisions based on their values, even if it's not always the popular decision.
