‘I wanted a tattoo of my daughter’s name in my mother’s handwriting, so I asked her.
“I also had on my list what I loved most about my daughter and what I hoped for her future. Even if your mom is young and you expect to have her around for a long time, ASK! It’s fine if you ask again in five years (hopefully you have time!) and she can also write about what she loves most about them.
Courtney added, “I don’t know what my mom’s favorite childhood memory was, and I wish I did.” Ask your mom. You will want to remember this. I also don’t know what my mother’s favorite childhood memory was. I know she was proud of me, but I’d like to know what EXACT moments were her favorite moments… when her heart filled with joy like mine for my children.
