What a beautiful post, you made me smiling with all the things you remembered. My sister was a lot like you described and that's what I love most about her.


Awww -- what a sweet girl she is -- and you were too! So funny that you taped on earrings and fingernails!! :) You were crafty way back then! How cute is that! Love Attack does sound pretty catchy! :)

I didn't think there was a child that was as much of a goofball as me...and my daughter, Katie. You literally have me laughing out loud...but I am also in awe of your lovely pictures and ow beatifully you told the story!

France must be coming pretty soon, huh?


Liz Roberts

"he knows good music and this could be a hit", oh my goodness!!! I can't stop laughing!!!


You are so funny....I think I drooled I was laughing at what you ended with:)
Those are some beautiful pictures of your daughter!!!!
And I love those memories you have...and making up those songs...I used to do that with my sister:)


Now you have that song in my head now! I know ~ it does not take much ~ just the power of suggestion really... I adore these photos Jeanne ~ they are gorgeous and I laughed because I simply remembering my mother saying and I sure yours did to ~ "I hope you have one just like you!" No truer words have been said as there are quite a few little "klones" running around. Hope you are having a fantastic Monday!


Hilarious! Well atleast you are little prepared for what is ahead now that you have realized she is just like you :)


Sewing with a stapler; you are resourceful:) These are awesome photos of a beautiful young girl!!

Beth Perry

girl that is sooo funny! I can't believe you taped paper earrings and fingernails on! haha
too cute!


I am going to wish one thing for you - for all the hard times you may have ahead with her? May you and she end each trial with hugs and smiles and love.

You're already started on the right track, that's sure! :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog today...


What beautiful photos. Your daughter sounds like a sweetie. This post made me smile because my 10 year old daughter reminds me so much of myself writing songs and poems all the time.


What beautiful pictures! And what a blessing our children are. It is true that those the most like us often butt heads with us...but only every now and then. And the in~betweens are so lovely. :)



i know you are being funny but reading your words , with the music playing in the background & looking at these GORGEOUS images, i love the beauty in this post.
especially those last words.
i'm most like my oldest. we had a rocky time there around age 13, but i totally GET her...right now we are in a fantastic place.
seriously, LOVE these images.

I think LOVE ATTACK could be a hit! That is hilarious!!! I love it! You are making me think of the funny things my sisters and I would do when we were little too. My daughter who is 5 loves to sing and b so dramatic. I think if she got left on the playground she would be singing a poor pitiful me song too. So cute and so great that you are getting this all written down. ~Shelley O.

Absolutely hilariious! I remember getting some of my dad's solder wire and pretending I had braces. My mom made me and my dolls matching dresses. I was such a girly girl but a Tomboy at the same time. I would climb a tree in my dress anyday. I am still the same way. Funny hu? My mom and are exactly the same and YES we do and did have some difficult times. But I love her dearly. :)


Thank you for sharing ... I had a good chuckle and a smile on my face the whole time I read your post. Of course the pictures of your daughter are fabulous & I just love the contrast. Anyway, my you were one creative child I wish I had known you as I had to also wait for pierced ears... I think I had to be 12. I was not so creative in regards to cutting out earrings... great idea! I was a song maker... still am & poems too! It is so wonderful to watch a creative mind developing you are a lucky mom, even with the frustrations attached.


This made me laugh so hard. It reminded me of myself and my sisters playing office or should I say we played Dallas all the time. We even did the taping earings on our ears too! Oh the memories. I also remember singing the goofiest songs about a buffalo ballerina, but I will spare you that one!

Beautiful post! It really hits home for me...I see "me" in my daughters and it's just astounding sometimes:) And oh how they make me laugh {& cry}!
