I Wan'na Be Like You

One of the pleasures of having children is they are reflection of ourselves. Not that they always reflect the things we would like them to! Leah has a seemingly normal desire to be like me. She wants to put on make up, have her toe nails painted, put on her own clothes & shoes, etc. Sometimes that spills over into wanting to wear Paul or my shoes and yesterday, my bra. Nice.

This was taken after she removed her own dress and struggled to get her arms through the straps. She was quite proud of the fact that she got it on. She told me that she doesn't need to wear a bra though because she has little boobies. Then she told me she will be a mommy someday with big boobies. Yes, she listens and remembers EVERYTHING I tell her. Never a dull moment around here.

And not that my child is a monkey, it brought to mind this song that I haven't heard in ages!

That is really funny! Ella loves to put on our clothes..I've caught her with all kinds of things on.

That is pretty funny. Good call on the song, too... That used to be one of my little brother's favorite movies when he was little.
