Let me count the ways.....
Diva is the child most like me, therefore, she is the most difficult to deal with. I love her with every ounce of my being, but sometimes I have to remind myself that I like her too.
1- I love your confidence. You have more confidence in yourself that I have ever had.
2- The way you leave me little love notes.
3- The way you love to organize...
4- The way you love all things "office supplies" - seriously, no one else gets excited with me when buying new notebooks
5- The way you sleep under a cover, no matter how hot it is.
6- How excited you get for your sisters' successes.
7- How you cannot stand to be wrong :)
8- The excitement you show when you open a new ream of paper or box of oil pastels.
9- Your smile
10- The way you play violin, I cannot play anything and you are an inspiration to me
11- The way you share your secrets with me
12 - How you are stuck in that little girl, young lady limbo
13- Your generosity, giving your things to your sisters so you have a birthday or Christmas present for them
14- The way you love to mismatch
15- How proud you are of your own accomplishments
16- Your faith, you are so much more anchored in your faith that I am, thank you for your example.
17 - The way you are only interested in the dances and other social things when learning about your new school.
18 - Seeing you on stage in Cinderella in you adorable baggy pants and vest.
19 - I love listening to you play violin, and how you will work on a problem piece over and over.
That is all for today, I am teary enough for now. I plan to add to this, and make one for each girl.
