“She looks just like her Mama!”
“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!”
“There’s no doubt who her mother is!”

These are just a few of the types of comments we hear when people meet my middle child. I don’t think of the Curly Girlie as my Mini-me, but out of all of my kids, she does resemble me the most. And frankly, I am flattered, because she is beautiful! Inside and out, a truly lovely person and she has a lot to offer this world!

At 11, she is in that tough spot, no longer a little kid, but just starting on the long journey to adulthood. I am in no hurry for her (or any of my kids) to grow up, and thankfully, neither is she. I’m not suggesting she’s baby-like, but rather, innocent. That quality is hard to find these days with all the crap the media exposes. She has a wonderful imagination and has taken an interest in writing. Maybe you will see her blogging one day.

Happy (belated) birthday to my Curly Girlie!

    Karen, I always enjoy your writing. You share candidly from your heart. I also enjoy keeping up with your family. Your children are all bright,, beautiful, and accomplished. A reflection on the values and parenting you and Jayson represent. Love you guys!!
