I think I must be the luckiest mom in the world, y’all. I get to spend every day with this:
Ok, so she’s not always THAT cheerful, but she is a lot of the time. And Sophie and I, we’ve just been having a lot of fun together lately. She’s grown and matured so much from the baby who put up a Olympic Gold Medal worthy wrestling effort every time I tried to get her dressed.
As a matter of fact, I’m starting to feel like Sophie and I aren’t just mother and daughter, but we’re friends. We play and giggle and hug and kiss, and I probably tickle her well, 100% more than I ever tickle any of my other friends, but, you know what I mean. We like hanging out!
My mom used to tell me, “I’m the best friend you’ll ever have.” And lucky for me, she was right. She taught me that to be Sophie’s friend, I also have to discipline her, protect her, and teach her. And I’m privileged to do all of that.
But I’m glad I get to play hide-n-seek and tea party with her too, you know? And I will for as long as she wants me to.
