I want to remember as often as possible, that two short years from now, I will think that the current Lucy is still so young and little. Though, I could hold on to the 5 year old stage for a long time.
Today Lucy asked me what color my arm was. Interesting question given that I know she was asking in the most literal sense. Uhhh, ummm, sort of pink and yellow??? Uh it's hard to say. Lucy laughs, "you have YELLOW skin??? ha ha ha" A few weeks ago she had her face painted and she went up to (a total stranger) someone and said, "look at my face, it used to be brown but now I am a puppy". Then later when I told her it was time to do hair she started throwing a fit and when I said, "Lucy, it's no big deal, we all need to keep our hair neat and clean" she counters with "it IS a big deal mom, you are NOT like me, look at our skin! Mom, who IS like me?" I was sooo thankful that we have many children and adults in our lives that I could quickly name off who are "like her".
