Mom & Molly... Just a like!
I have been getting such a kick out of Molly lately, she is doing so many quirky things that remind me so much of me. I do have to say I think she looks so much like her dad, there is not much, if any, of her that looks like me. Some of the funny things that remind me of myself are little things here and there that you wouldn't pick up on if you don't spend a lot of time with her or me. This sounds so stupid, but I love the feel of elbows... I know don't ask me to explain, I just like the way they feel. Kris found this out the hard way. I will sit next to him and just play with his elbow while we watch TV, drive in the car, walk down the street. It sounds funnier that it actually looks, promise. I have always been like this. When I was a little girl I would remember sitting next to my mom in sacrament meeting and playing with her elbow the whole time. I don't ever play with Molly's because hers are so little there is not really an elbow there. The other day we were sitting on the couch together and she just started playing with my elbow, she will do it every now and then and it just makes me smile, so me! One of the other things that I have noticed is that she loves to pick. If I have a sore or zit I can almost count on a scar because I just can't leave it alone. Kris can also attest to this one, I do the some thing to him. Again something that Molly has picked up. She has some sores on the back of her heals where her new sandals have rubbed and I was trying to change her diaper and she was getting so mad because she wanted to pick the sore and I wasn't letting her. Another way she is becoming more like me is she gets a second wind... If I'm not in bed early, which never happens, I'm more of a night owl. I get this crazy energy at night. Molly is the same way if you don't get her in to bed by bed time 7:00 she just gets crazy! She gets really giggly and will just run around is circles. I just asked Kris what he thinks makes her more like me and he pointed out that we (Molly and I) both have an amazing amount of patience...RIGHT! He was being sarcastic. I just thought I would share some of these funny little quirks Molly and I share. I really do just get a kick out of her everyday.
