D is for Daughters

A woman rich in Daughters, that’s me:

One looks like me, the other acts like me.

(When the Preteen got glasses at age 7, she said, “Great, Mom, now I’m going to look like you for the rest of my life!” )

They are tech-heads, for sure.

They both like to travel; in Millenium Park in Chicago, below (WWKIP Day!)

and they love being outdoors.

Sometimes they even seem to love each other.

They look so innocent when they’re sleeping. . .

but the illusion is shattered when they’re awake.

But among their many talents, which include singing, Dancing, playing instruments — you’ve seen ’em Doing so right here —

they are Both KNITTERS.

Which means they also appreciate hand-knit gifts very much.

What more could a mother ask for in her Daughters?

  1. I think daughters must be tough… wonderful, but harder than boys, yes? Maybe the payoff is that after they go through the teenage alien stage, they become better friends to their moms than sons do.

  2. Both knitters! Well…if you were looking for proof that you’ve done good, that must be it.

  3. The Pre-Teen does look like you, especially in the WWKIP photo.

  4. All I can say about it is to enjoy them while they are with you. I have 4, and raising them was fun and difficult. Sometimes the difficult seemed to outweigh the fun. (I remember MANY crying jags from frustration) Recently, however, I have learned that watching them leave home is even more difficult. I think back now to those frustrating and difficult days and wonder why I let it get to me so much. Now that they have almost all left home (only one left), I would give almost anything to go backwards in time.
