My Girl

...longs for her own home in the middle of trees with animals and privacy.

...likes to talk for the animals and always has them call me Mama.

Mom and girl time at a local tea shop

...told me that of course I can live where she does when she grows up. In fact, I can live in her mansion.

...isn't sure what she wants to be when she grows up but wanted to know if bartending was okay. not always sweet or kind or loving but is always interesting.

we both love to watch the cream swirl

...has a deadly sense of humor. not a morning person.

...marches to her own drummer.

...could not only survive forever on a desert island but also be fully accessorized within the first half hour.

...loves to sing.

...still lets me hold her hand as long as she's the one who makes the first move.

...still likes me even though I embarrass her sometimes.

Awesome post! And every bit of it was true - she is a wonder of unique qualities. I was getting teary reading it - can you tell I'm totally hormonal and ready to try and procreate?

I would love nothing more than if you got your own girl to give you a run for your money.

Oh, sweet. She's a dear, and right now I'm feeling again that once we're a mother to anyone, we're a mother to everyone. I have a 12-year old daughter, and that makes all the difference as I read your post. Thank you.
