Daughter Playing "Mommy"

babysugar Diaries: Imitating Mommy


It melts my heart to see my daughter fawn over her little brother. She caresses his cheeks, baby talks him, pats his tummy and holds his hand. She often echoes me, "What's the matter?" "That's a good boy!" and "Hey buddy!"

Clearly in tune with her maternal being, she enjoys the role of playing mommy. And, relishes it so much that one night as I gave her a bath, she held one of her squirt toys to her chest and said, "He's having some milk from my chi chis." Tickled to tears, I grabbed my camera and snapped away. I hope I'll have the ripe opportunity to share that priceless shot with her.

Update: Due to the unhealthy comments regarding this post, I swapped the photo to show bath toys.
