Me and my baby girl.
There are the physical similarities, to be sure. Everyone always says she is my mini-me. And that she is, that she is.
I was reading the girls a book before they went to bed. It was titled, "I Like School."
When I was finished, I asked Maya first, "What is your favorite part of going to school?"
Maya contemplated for a minute. "Ummm...I like my science class. I like playing with my friends and I like my backpack."
Xixi, however, did not miss a beat.
"I like painting and I like the snacks!"
I couldn't have said it better myself.
