What do you wish for your child/ren?



  1. I agree with what you wrote! I had a similar post before: http://sleepingshouldbeeasy.com/2011/09/13/my-hopes-for-lo-when-hes-an-adult/ but this one talks more about concrete things I would love for him to achieve, especially after having reviewed my own life.

    The biggest one for me is I hope my little guy will be able to contribute something positive to this world 🙂

    • Welcome to Sixtine and The Little things Sleeping mom and thank you for your comment. I read your sweet post about your son and hope some of my readers will give it a look !
