To My Future Demon Spawn

To my unborn demon spawn,

I call you this because I can only assume that the years of "I hope your child turns out just like you" curses will come true and you'll be just as difficult as I am from day one. Your life hasn't begun yet but you should know that I love you already. You are the one consistent thing I've known I've wanted for my entire life. I have always wanted to be a mother, and you little baby will make me that. I can't wait for the day that I see that positive sign on the test, when I feel your first kick, for the first time I hold you. I can't wait to hold you for the first time and count your little fingers and toes. I look forward to watching you learn and explore the world around you. To see your first steps, hear your first words, read you bedtime stories. These are all things that I want more than anything in the world. I want to walk you to your first day of school, comfort you through your first heartbreak, beam with pride when you're walking across the stage at your graduation, cry with happiness at your wedding. I wish for these things with all of my heart and dear future baby, words can not describe the joy I'll feel when all my deepest wishes come true. And sweet little boy or girl, these wishes all start with you.
