My Little Girl...


I have heard that the relationship between a mother and daughter is the most difficult of all family relationships. Over the years, once the trials of teenagedom passed, my mom and I became the best of friends. Her absence has made me so much more aware of the special bond between a mother and daughter. As Elle is getting older, changing from baby to little girl, I am relishing in the many little similarities I see between she and I...from her fondness of fashion to her desire and determination to keep up with the boys. I see in her a friend for life...and I hope she will one day see in me-a soft place to fall when her heart gets broken and the first person waiting to cheer her on and share in every great event and accomplishment in her life...just as my mom always was for me.

Sweet post. I hope my girls and I can be close like that too. I already feel so clsoe to them, like they are my best friends and then they get mad at me for doing something "dorky."

That is so sweet. I LOVE my girls and can already tell that we will be best friends. The bond definately starts when they are young. Your daughter is so cute.
