Sometimes I get glimpses of you not as a little girl, and it makes my heart ache.

Me: "Did your friends miss you while you were out yesterday?"

You: "I guess."

Me: "You said your friends were going to miss you."

You: "I said they were going to ask where I was."

Me: "And where did you say you were?"

You: "In the United States of Nunya."

...pause...

You: "I am so your daughter."

About six weeks ago, you and I were snuggling and I leaned down to you and said, "I love you so much". And you looked up at me and said, "I wish I could say the same."

Last night you were playing a board game with your cousins and when it was Uncle Paul's turn you said, "Ok big boy, your turn."

Today you called me and complained that "the babysitter" wasn't helping you with your homework.

Your babysitter is your brother.

It is now part of your narrative that at age 6, you got up on the high school stage at the annual variety show and sang "Fight Song" solo. Your dad and I are so incredibly proud of you. You are the bravest kid I know. You rocked it!!

"I love you"
"I love you too, Mommy"
"I love you more"
"I love you more"
"No, I love you more"
"Yeah, you're probably right."
