My four year old daughter is a very creative and very dramatic little girl. She comes up with the funniest stories, the most inventive games and is loads of fun. She loves all things girly and really loves her shoes. She wears a big flower or bow in her hair almost daily, wants to wear sparkly dresses or flower shirts every chance she gets and likes to accessorize already.
Lately she has been on a kick of telling us what she wants to be when she grows up. Some days she wants to be a cook, other days she wants to be a zoo keeper. A few days ago she was going to be a girl wrestler and then last night she wanted to be a firefighter. The one thing she always goes back to though is that she wants to be a mommy.
She loves helping me with her little sisters, she ooohs and awes over the baby, gets frantic if I do not pick up the baby the moment she fusses, parents over her two year old sister and even tries to parent over her big brother. She is a little mother hen for sure.
I was tucking her into bed one night last week and she reached up and gave me a huge hug and then said ” mommy, when I grow up, I want to be just like you”. I am sure every parent has heard these words at least one time but it really melted my heart. I am happy that my daughter wants to mirror me and this also makes me want to be the best that I can be. I want to be the type of person that I would be proud to see my little girl grow into.
