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.
Separate but together.
