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?"


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.

So cute! Where did you get that book? I've never seen one before.

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!
