I had always longed for a little girl, and that is because of my mama. You see, I love being my mama’s daughter. I know the depths and uniqueness of a mother/daughter relationship, and I always, ALWAYS wanted to have that same kind of relationship with my own daughter. There is nothing in the world like a mama and her little girl.
There is also nothing in the world like sisters. When I was pregnant again this past fall, as much as I knew I one day wanted a son, I secretly hoped it was another little girl – because I am desperate for Cameron Kate to experience the joys of having a sister. It’s a relationship like no other, a relationship that makes life more rich and meaningful and colorful.
And this weekend, I get to spend many, many, uninterrupted hours with my mama and my sisters. We realized we hadn’t ever had a weekend with just us four, so after much discussion, plans were made. Toes will be painted, clothes will be bought, alcohol will be consumed, and lots of delicious, calorie-laden food will be devoured. But most importantly, we will talk, and laugh, and remember what it’s like to put our busy lives on hold and just be a mama and her three little girls.
