She is opinionated. She has a fierce independent streak. She has a hugely stubborn attitude. She is a bossy big sister.
She is exactly like me.
I see myself in her expressions. I hear myself in her voice when she speaks.
She inspires me to be a better Mommy, a better, more patient person. I have to be. For she is always watching. Always imitating.
She is my first born.
But every once in awhile, I get to see her as simply a sweet little four-year old. Just a precious little kid running free, with all of that “first born” stuff tucked safely away. It always brings a smile to my face, and makes me so thankful that she is (and always will be) my first baby.
Make sure to stop over to Tracey’s and see what is inspiring everyone else this fine Monday.
