day 7: up close
hers and mine. they don’t look alike. i look like my dad. she looks like hers. but she is so my daughter. quite often watching her is like watching myself as a child. she keeps lists of the books she reads. she wants to use the $20.oo easter gift money that she got from my grandma to pay off her library fines (she left a book at nana and papa’s, we couldn’t find it and now she owes $21.60). she likes thrifted finds for her dollhouse and her room. she wears striped tights and stockings with converse tennis shoes. and she bites her nails. i don’t know what i would do without her girly presence in my life. i even enjoy washing her clothes! thank heaven for little girls……….
