For years Princess Magpie had felt insecure about her place in our family. She couldn’t figure out where she fit in. She wasn’t the littlest one, she wasn’t the youngest girl, she wasn’t the oldest. But then people began to notice how much like me she was. She revelled in that. It made her feel like she has a place. I call her my “mini-me” and she lights up and fairly dances around the room. She knows she isn’t required to be like me (her love of all things math is all her own lol) but she delights in pointing out the ways we are alike. My sweet little helper-girl, my little mini-me is finally feeling secure in our place in our family and that makes this mommy’s heart glad.
