so much like her mama
This little girl of mine is so much like me. I see it more and more every day. She may be a bit wild and crazy and rambunctious like her dad, but when it comes to her desire to make things with her hands, well that apple didn't fall far from the maternal tree.
Her most recent project was a handmade dollhouse which she made from an old box, wallpaper samples, fabric, and other odds and ends. I found this completely endearing as I had done the same exact thing when I was around her age. Having desperately wanted a real dollhouse and having never received one (I forgive you dad and mom), I took it upon myself to build one out of an old box. Her house is much, much nicer than mine as I only had napkins, tissues, and pieces of cardboard to build and decorate my house! How the industry has improved on craft supplies over the years!
Anyway, this here mama still dreams about that big old wooden dollhouse. (In fact, I even occasionally look at kits online.) And some day, I have a feeling that maybe she and I will tackle one of those kits together, and then enjoy decorating our little house with all means of cute miniatures.
