Does your child ever do or say something in exactly the same way as you?
And it’s a good thing?
Those moments are little glints of gold, as surprising and wonderful as getting a thinking-of-you note in the mail.
Today, my daughter and I were discussing a particular project she was working on… and lamenting the length of it.
“Just remember,” I said. “When it’s done…”
She smiled and spoke in unison with me, “It’s done.” Then she grabbed up her pencil and buried her head in her work.
A moment later:
“I love you, Mom.”
I will live on that for weeks.
