Mother Daughter Day

Sunday, Eldest Twerp and I had a little mother daughter day. And we both found a new lover of our soul: Gelato. For her, mint chocolate chip. For moi: dolce de leche. In transition, "dolce de leche" ironically enough, means "Lover of CG's Soul." How cool is that?
Please don't judge me.
But in this little girl's heart? There is room for none other than mint chocolate chip.
Seriously, it is hard sometimes to look down in those eyes and wonder what kind of impact you are making. The move, the new school, the transitions. How does it all change the very person she is? How do the decisions I make make an impression on her life forever.Motherhood: It is a big responsibility. And you only have one chance to get it all right. God help me. But there is always shopping ... and ET's quirky sense of humor. She wanted me to post this like a Where's Waldo. But instead call it Where's ET?
She makes me smile. Always.

Looks like a fun day! She'll remember those times when she's "all growed up!" ;)
p.s. Gelato is gooooood. Pricey little stuff, though!

No, I take it back. I thought dolce de leche was italian for "straight to Dana's hips!" hee hee!
