Mom, I forgot something...

I walk Anne Marie into her classroom each morning because Ellie is not old enough for the drop off/pick up line. So we walk in and Anne Marie almost always runs to her classroom while I drop off Ellie. I then follow Anne Marie to drop off her bag and say goodbye. She's already into the morning activity but, as I say "Goodbye, have a great day", looks up and running to me says, "Mom, I forgot something". Then she gives me a giant hug and kiss, turns and runs back to her activity, happy to be at school with her friends. Always the same words. Always the same actions. Always the same unembarrassed love for her mother. I LOVE this stage in her life. It certainly has its ups and downs as she figures out how to be a big girl. But she is an amazing companion these days, eager to join in and help, wanting to question and learn, quick to forgive and laugh, ready to love and be loved.

Who's that girl?
