Like mother, like daughter

There are times when I want to wring a certain teenage girl's little neck.

And times when she is so sweet I want to eat her up with a spoon.

She's going through a particularly sweet period these days.

Wanting special time with Mommy.

Wanting me to tuck her in at night.

Wanting to be like me.

But her latest idea was totally unexpected.

When we were in the airport, on the way back from Z-man's graduation, she was haunting the gift shops, looking for ... oh ... I don't know ... WHATEVER.

She fondled bracelets and necklaces and rings. I played with the jewelry as well. She found a ring that she really liked. I liked it too.

She looked at me and grinned.

"Wanna be twinsies?"

Yes, my daughter and I now have matching silver rings. I particularly like them because they each have two bands that are permanently linked in a puzzle-like knot.

Like us.

Separate but together.

Always.

Oh that is so sweet! My mum and I did something similar with a couple of necklaces. :) We still have them 15 years later!

Gawd I'm dying of the cuteness and cheese. It's too much for me.

If I ever wear a ring that matches Granilla's, I hope somebody shoots me.

One of the many reasons why I miss my mom. I think you and Roo have a wonderful relationship.

I love gift shops. Those rings are VERY cool. I may do that for my Mom. Of course, we're both so old now it may lose something in the translation. :)

Your relationship with your daughter is so special and I just know the rings will be treasured by both of you-so sweet.

Awwww! That is so incredibly sweet! My "baby" is graduating high school today. As a matter of fact she has to be up at the high school in 30 minutes and we will be there an hour later to see her walk. *sigh* It really does go fast, doesn't it?

Those are gorgeous rings. I love that she wanted to be twinsies with you :)
