She is teaching me lessons by perfectly mimicking almost everything I do. She insists on being right, like me. She insists on running the show, like me. She can snap back with a little sass, like me. And she is a little too quick to point out mistakes, like me.
This is where I bow my head and blush with a little embarrassment and a twinge of shame.
Except more than anything else, Im grateful. Because it doesn't matter what I say, she will continue right on. But I know that she will notice what I do...and she will mimic that too. And hopefully she will learn that trying to be the best person you can be never gets old. And one day I will tell her all the ways she made me a better mom, a better friend and a better me.
Thanks Bella Boo, I needed that.
