It is so hard to believe that you are so grown up. Where have the years gone? I am asking this as if you are on your way to being married, but I know that I will turn around, and you will be gone.
Recently, you have been doing such funny things. I love how you say you want to be a clinic worker, or a veterinarian like me. It is hard to believe that someone would think that much of me! (besides Daddy, of course). You have asked me lately if we could be twins. You are so neat! You suggested that we were both girls, both wore flip flops and had pink toenails. And, you asked if we could be twins forever.
Perhaps I should ask you? I know that days will come that you will have outgrown our closeness. Time will be here soon that you are less dependent on me. Why, school is only a few weeks away! You will have a special teacher that will be the apple of your eye. And, rightfully so. It's hard for me to think that there will be another person to have you all day long - to be your influence.
But, I know that you are growing up. You are growing up in front of my watchful eye everyday - and I am so proud of the daughter you are to us. And, while I'm watching you grow up, I will always remember these days that you were home with me - as my little girl. Your future, I pray, will be filled with immense happiness.
Just be my twin. Always.
