Comparisons

I had lunch with Papa Bear and Big Sis yesterday, which is always a treat. We talked about some work stuff and some "family" stuff but mostly just visited. At one point, the conversation turned to the missing sisters: Smoking Hot Roommate and Munchkin.

Papa Bear noted how remarkably similar they are, and how similar Munchkin is to SHR when she was her age. There are the obvious things...like they look a lot alike, both are fantastically athletic and first in their classes.

But Big Sis, in her own insightful way, summed it up as follows: "Most teenagers struggle to figure out who they are and where they fit in. SHR knew exactly who she was at age 16, and I have never seen anyone else have that same kind of self-awareness until Munchkin."

That made me smile:-)

Why was I not invited to lunch?!?!

Seriously, she is much smarter than me, and more confident and I think more mature. But I will gladly accept the comparison as a compliment!

I'll say this is another example of how wonderful you've done as a "parent" to her. Good job AM! :)
