Mothers and Daughters


When I was 6 I had "My Book About Me". I loved to fill in all the pages about my favorite color and how many steps it was to my mailbox. I got Lydia one for her birthday and she got right to work.

She came to me a few days ago to help her with the "when I grow up" page.

"What do I put here?"

"Well, you write down what you want to be when you grow up."

She looked at the jobs on the page for a while.

"I can't find "mommy" on the list."

I showed her where to find the word "mother".

"Can I write two things?"

"Sure."



She carefully wrote down "Mother" and "Princess". 

I gave her a hug and told her I wanted to show her something.



"Look Lydia. Here is my book from when I was your age."



"They look a lot the same don't they?"



I hope she gets to grow up to be a mommy to a beautiful little girl too.
She's already a princess. 

I'm so glad I decided long ago to be a mother.

I also discovered a little story she wrote. It's pretty great.:

"One day a little princess was happy, then sad, then shy, then she realized she had lots of feelings. 
The End."

All my kids have those books too. Love them. I loved mine growing up, mine is not exactly like theirs but fun to still share with them.

What an awesome idea for a book! And how fun that you still have the one you did as a kid to share with your daughter!
