I grabbed her cute little face and babied her and said, "Awww, are you ok?"
She pushed my hands away and said, "Mom! I'm fine! Don't act like that! That's how teenagers with kids act. You are not a teenager with kids!! You are a strong woman!!!"
In that moment I was reeling from being so reprimanded - but at that last comment, I just had to smile. Yes, Ellie-girl, you are right. Mommy doesn't need to baby you, she is a strong woman. She can handle you growing up (I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, etc.).
The next day I was telling Darik and as his jaw dropped to the floor Ellie walked by. I asked her - "Are you a strong woman, too?"
"No," she says, "I am a strong little girl."
My job is done here, folks. :-) I wish!
p.s. BYU won!
