One night a couple of weeks ago as I was putting Eleanor to bed she declared, "I be like my mommy!" I had just grabbed one of her stuffed animals and was using it as a pillow and as she said those five simple words she did the same. Obviously, in that context those words did not mean a whole lot, but it certainly got me thinking. Her words were so sweet and it definitely made this mama smile, but it also made me wonder about the example I am setting for my precious girl. I hope and pray that I am living my life in such a way that I would want my daughter to grow up and "be like me." Those five words have definitely made me rethink the way I handle certain situations or how I react to things because I know there is a bright-eyed little girl watching and mirroring me throughout my day! Thank you sweet girl for helping me strive to be a better wife and mom!
