My Hope For My Daughter


For those that don’t know, I have this awesome kid named Alexis, but she goes by Lexi. Not too long ago she turned 12 years old and started middle school. Like most parents, I am proud of my daughter. Of course, she slips up like most kids and has preteen drama but in the end, she is a pretty good kid. She is super laid back, has that awesome dry sense of  humor and is creative. Oh, is she creative! This child of mine can take a little square of clay and turn it into this and can also take a canvas and some paint and turn it into this! She never ceases to amaze me, so as her biggest fan, I want to see her Go Big and succeed with whatever she does. As a way to communicate with her, I wanted to write her a very special blog post titled, ‘My Hope for My Daughter’. 

My Wish-For-My-Daughter-is-to-go-big

My sweet Lexi, you are truly our miracle baby. Yes, you are 12 years old but you will always be our little miracle. You overcame heart surgery as a baby, along with a few other surgeries before you turned one. Looking at you today, it’s as if none of those surgeries ever happened. You have overcome so much.


Today as a 12-year-old you have a lot going on. School is not what it used to be. You have 7 teachers that have different expectations and a new found independence. Your friends are going to change and you’ll find that some of your friends are not true friends but then you will hopefully find a few people that you can call a ‘friend’. As a preteen, this can be the hardest part of growing up. My hope for you is to be true to yourself and offer your friendship to that kid that doesn’t have a friend. If you see someone sitting alone at lunch, ask them to sit with you. If there is a new kid in class, make sure to tell them hello. My hope is that you will be known as the kid that always cared for others.

You’ve always been smart and have rarely needed help with school work, but as you enter middle school, you will see that the work is a little bit harder and the expectations are a lot higher. My hope for you is to try your hardest and ask for help when you need it but never stress yourself out because life is too short and there will always be someone to help you.


My last hope for you is that you Go Big! Never stop making your dreams come alive. You are the most amazing artist that I have ever met. I see your passion for art every day and I love it! I want you to Go Big and use your skills to show the world how amazing you really are. Open an art studio, become a cake designer, become an art teacher, be a graphic designer, do what you love, but just make sure to Go Big and don’t let anything hold you back!

Have you heard of Yoplait ® Go Big ™ yogurt? It’s a new much larger yogurt pouch made to fuel super amazing tweens. It has a grip-and-rip pouch that is perfect for on-the-go, and the design is fit for more of a tween and is not kiddish. It is also made with real fruit and has just the right amount of sweetness, and most importantly, the right amount of yogurt to satisfy growing kid’s hunger. Trust me when I say that tweens these days are amazing. They are involved in different activities from sports to computer clubs to clubs that give back to their communty. Go Big was created with these kids in mind so they can crush their snack single-handedly, just like they can crush everything in their life single-handedly.


Go Big wants you to share what you think makes your tween amazing and how their amazingness inspires you. Like most parents, Go Big believes tweens have something amazing to share with the world. They would love for my readers (that’s you) to share stories of why you think your tween is amazing. Doing this not only let’s you shout out to the world how super awesome your tween is but it could also inspire other kids. Visit the Go Big Facebook page and share why your tween is awesome and amazing.



Do you have an amazing tween? Share your story on the Go Big Facebook page but please share with me also, I’d love to read about your super awesome tween.


  1. As a mom of a just turned 11-year old, I love your post. They have such big hearts and their love is never ending. The teen drama shows its face more and more frequently but I love that you picked out the positives about Lexi!

    Thank you. 🙂
