my sidekick

 meet my sidekick
her name is pia gabrielle
pia for short
she is 3 years and 5 months old
her favourite colour is blue
she loves to colour (though everything is usually covered in blue)
so maybe i should say she loves to "blue"?
her favourite book is big sister, little sister
and she hasn't met a fruit she didn't love to eat

she wakes up at the same time as me
we eat breakfast at the same time
she comes with me to drop her big sister off at school
we run errands together
shop for groceries together
eat lunch together

we sit on the couch holding hands
and she watches my favorite shows with me

she cuddles right up next to me and likes to
snuggle her little feet into my lap

like any dynamic duo, we have our little tiffs
like for example, yesterday she didn't want to wear green leggings
she wanted to wear her blue leggings
we compromised (meaning, she won and i lost)
and went along our merry way

soon, my little sidekick will me making
her way into the big world of preschool
and leaving me all by my lonesome
to run errands and watch my shows

so for now, if you don't hear
from me too much on here
it's probably because
my sidekick and i are
tackling one coloring book after another
one blue crayon at a time

That's so funny, I just posted a little homage to my little one this weekend too! I love the sidekick metaphor, it's perfect. Because we really do drop the big girl off to school and it's me and my baby Mo for the morning. Very sweet post.

Wow, this is one of the nicest descriptions of motherhood I think I've ever read! It's not often I get broody, but I really like the idea of having a little sidekick to keep me company :)
