Like Mother, Like Daughter

>> Tuesday, July 28, 2009

My mother sent me a box full of my old dance costumes. For Nani - it was like Christmas had come early!

She asked me if she could play dress-up, and I happily let her. I watched her pull out costume after costume -- each one holding a special memory for me. I heard "Mommy, look!" and looked over to see her wearing the costume from my very first dance recital -- I was 5 years old. I took a picture of her -- and then dug around until I found a picture of me at that age in the same costume.


In the meantime, I'm almost 100% completely recovered from whatever illness decided to hold me in it's grip for almost three weeks. I actually had the energy to get up this morning and workout! My journey back is slow -- but I'm working hard not to let it get the best of me!

There's some new fun out in Blogland -- It's the Blog Hop! Hosted by MckMama and Brent Riggs, it's the latest thing for visiting other blogs and see what others are doing!

This week's Blog Hop theme is Favorite Kid Photos. You can have one or more of your favorite photos your kids, grandkids, someone else's kid or even YOU when you were a kid. Funny, precious, heartwarming... your favorite!.

LOVE it! I danced for 16 years and my mom has a whole trunk of my costumes in her attic. I cannot wait to have a daughter that can play dress up in them or for my niece to be old enough to!

Thanks for the comment! I love the pic of you and your daughter in the same costume! When i was kid, I used to play dress up in my grandma's red slip that went under those 50's skirts. Man I can't even remember the name of them right now but I loved it! I know your little girl loved that. She will cherish those memories!

I'm so glad you're feeling better! I kept checking back to see if there was a new post and was starting to get worried!

Those photos are too cute! I can totally see the resemblance!! I bet she had a lot of fun trying on all those different outfits. :-)

Thanks for stopping by and I love the fact that your photos are of you and your daughter in the same outfit! My grandmother made two shirts for my father when he was little. I have a picture of me wearing I am going to take a picture of Patrick in it...hopefully I haven't waited too long and it still fits!

Thanks for checking in...and if you scroll down our blog, the past few entries recap our beach vacation!
