My Dearest Yui-chan,
I know I says this more then you want to hear, but I love you with all that I am. My heart and soul, along with your father, created someone so perfect. How could I not shout my admiration from the roof tops. I have been blessed by God with not one, but two absolutely wonderful little humans. And, it is my privilege to be your mother. And in saying that I make this vow to you:

I promise, as you grow, I will continue to be that teacher of life for you. I will be honest with you about that outfit you so desperately want to wear, but know that I would NEVER send you out the house that way. I promise to check you when you get an attitude and roll your eyes in defiance. I promise to get in your face and ride your butt if your grades start to slip because you chose to hang out with the wrong crowd. I promise to keep you on the right track, to make sure you put the Lord first in all the things you do and understand where true joy comes from. I promise to instill in you what a real lady is because as Andre 300 from OUTKast says "kids will have to go to a museum just to see what a lady looks like".
I promise to be there when you walk across that stage and say good bye to adolescence and hello to adulthood. And I promise that when that happens, to know that my role as your teacher will be no more. You see my sweet girl, I will transition as well. No, I won't be your teacher anymore because hopefully, I will have taught you all the life lessons you need to know to make it in this world. But I promise to be your mentor. I vow to be your example of a woman through and through. I will be that role model of strength, honor and kinds that was handed down to me. I pass these traits to you my love. And through all of this my sweet Yui, I will always be there for you.
I love you with all that I am. Happy birthday my sweet baby girl.
Love Mommy xoxoxox
