Small and Mighty

Dear Future Spouse:  Beware.  This girl means business.  

Recently at dinner, Patrick and I chose three words to describe each child.  We didn't compare notes until we had the first three to come to mind.

Words for Tatum:

Daddy says:  
Smart
Stubborn
Observant

Mommy says:
Intelligent
Stubborn
Independent










I am wicked-proud of that stubborn little girl!

She will fill you with pride and vex you mightily--and you won't want it any other way. Mother of a stubborn adventurer who?

I don't know how we ended up with the same thing. Our sensitive boy and our kick your ass little girl!

Love it!

And by the way, what a great thing to do together. Wonder what my hubby and I would both say? Thanks for the idea Jamie.

And GREAT picture of you and Tatum together.

This is priceless! I am a twin and would love to have had a "list" from my parents to compare with how we turned out!

(I stopped by from "Loving the Simple Life" your family is too cute!)

Yikes!

Marlys said...

She is going to need that determination and stubbornness as she grows into a great woman. (She will also need them to win her awards at camp)!

KKJ said...

What a great activity. We need to try that! Where did you do it?

Trish said...

Well she is just like her mother and maybe even Gran too.
What a great kid. I am wicked proud too.

Of BOTH kids!

I do like that little girl.
I have a boy that could be described almost exactly the same way. They certainly keep life interesting!!

The picture of the two of you is just beautiful!!

Maybe you can get the bust of her wedding gown embroidered with the word BEWARE!

But I get the feeling that her stubborness will help her get real far in life (and so will her eyes.)

i think your Tatum and my Hannah are the same person! Or maybe it's just a girl thing...
