My Little Me

Last week we were busy getting dressed for the day and Grace (who is always done getting dressed first) was rummaging around in the closet. I couldn't figure out what she was doing, and asked her to come out and join the rest of us until we were all ready to go.

"I'm just getting ready for the day, Mommy!"

"What do you mean?"

"I wrote down everything we need to do today so we won't forget!"

"Where did you write it?"

"Right here!" She held up her Magna Doodle.

There it was- the day's To-Do list, written to the best of my preschooler's ability, for all to read.

Sometimes children take after their parents, in personality or appearance, and sometimes children really are an exact copy of one of them- this is the case with Grace. Jim and I say it all the time- good and bad!- swap out the blonde curls for brown and she's exactly like me.

This is just one more example- my little girl, organizing the days tasks, ready to tackle them all.

Those curls are just too much! What a sweet girl you have.

I love seeing how Eve is much like me as well. Every time we run to the store she asks for a list to bring.I would be completely lost without my (million) lists! I can only hope she is like me in all the good ways, not in my shortcomings.

I totally have this with Hannah as well. Except the looks part. The whole wanting to be like mom with the lists and everything must be part of First Child Syndrome or something.
