I was driving home today remembering an event that I went to recently. I love to dance and there was a dance floor but no one from our group wanted to go do any of the dances. I was begging someone to go with me and finally one of my friends said ok, even though I’m sick I’ll go dance with you. Well today I realized my daughter is just like me.
No wonder she’s always asking me to go with her. She needs her hand held just like me and realizing that today made me smile and appreciate her for who she is.
I do want her to learn how to be independent but I’m not going to push her as hard as I have been. I’m going to enjoy this time while I can.
