Who is the mama here?

It was such a gorgeous spring day today. Savannah and I went outside to get some fresh air and to enjoy the sunshine. I sat in a chair and watched her as she ran back and forth, so excited to be out of the house.

She hid a little princess toy inside her playhouse, and then came scampering over to me.

"Mama! Where princess go?" she asked, pretending like she didn't know where she put it.

I played along and said, "I don't know! Where is it? Where did it go?"

And she smiled brightly, that beautiful baby smile that gets me every time. "I go find it," she announced as she bustled off importantly.

Then she turned and added, "Don't worry about it."

My child is becoming me.
