On my road trip to and from Iowa with My Oldest, I found out:
She is a fierce competitor, but does not have as much self-confidence as she puts out.
She runs like the wind, but has the running form of Popeye.
She does whatever is in her power to impress me and is upset with herself when I am not happy (even if it is not about her).
She is very funny, but she sucks at telling jokes.
She is kind.
She has a non-chalant attitude, but cares about other’s opinions.
She screams for independence but wants me right by her side.
She is very book smart, yet very gullible.
She loses everything. Usually, it is right in front of her.
She is very tall for her age and has huge feet, which is why people are surprised when they discover her age.
With all of my deadlines for work and school, I had barely noticed how she is becoming her own person. This is happening way too quickly!
