so today she was sitting on the potty “trying” to go and she said out of the blue, “you look a bit like your mom.”


i said, “really?  well, thank you.”  i was a little shocked to hear her say such a thing, given my mom was dead for over a year before i even met maddie…matter of fact, before maddie was even born!


she said, “do you see her shadow over there?”


i got chills and repeated what she said with a puzzled look on my face. 


she said, “yes, do you see your shadow over there?”


make of it what you will, but this little girl amazes me…every day i’m starry-eyed and lovestruck in her presence.


plus—she thinks i look like my mom!
