Motherhood: Spunk, Spirit, Smile

Hadley marched in her first parade yesterday.  On our way home, she spotted this car.  “Mummy, I love this car.  Someday I will drive a car like this.”  I giggled a bit, and she insisted, “No, mom, really.  I will.  I love it.”

I love this girl.  At six, she lights up the world every day with her spunk, spirit, and smile.  Later in the day, she dressed herself for a casual afternoon barbecue.  She came down in a dress, leggings, and black patent leather shoes.  I asked her several times if she wanted to change, or at least swap out the shoes for flip-flops.  Finally, sick of my badgering, she said tersely, “Mummy, it’s Memorial Day.  You really should dress up to honor people.”
