Mini Me

Many people tell me that my daughter G, ressembles me a lot. This is not very surprising though, she is my flesh and blood! Even sometimes I joke by telling people that G is my Mini Me. But is she? Despite our ressemblance, our character is different. I can tell in this early stage.
The reason I came to this subject is the question I have had lately. Do I undeliberately push my will too much on her? Or for worse, do I force her to be a daughter she’s not? You guys, for sure you must know someone who has/needs to please his/her parents by always meeting to their standards such as children or young adults whose choice of school major defined by their parents for example.
Just take a simple thing for example, it is inevitable that G copies the way I dress. It’s funny though, nowadays, she projects herself in me and asks me to buy dress with the same print as hers. OK, I am now her role model, but even her music taste or her interest for painting and dancing is the same as mine. I often see myself, little Lorraine, in her now. I believe this is the joy of being a parent, to recognize yourself within your children.
Of course as a parent, you will only the best things for your child’s sake. At least, you find this way untill your child would grow up and has his/her own wil.
From now on, I decide to enjoy my time with my mini me. A day will come when I must let her go exploring herself en life itself. And believe me, this day will appear soon before I really aware of it!
