Today at school there was an end of the year party.  The kids dressed up as what they want to be when they grow up.  Claire had a hard time deciding.  She vetoed her original idea of being a dentist or a farmer.  In the end, my girl dressed as a mommy.  She packed a baby on her back and a thoughtfully loaded diaper bag.  She wore my big pink beaded necklace and a turquoise flower pinned to her Hello Kitty shirt.  

She told her dad being a mom sounds fun because you get to be the tooth fairy and plan the fun stuff that your kids get to do.  May I remember this when I can't see my way out of the laundry pile and Ingrid's on her third clothing change of the day and Everett wants to pour his own milk...

She wants to be like me.

I love that girl. And being like you means she will be (is already) awesome. :)
