She's Teaching Me

My three-year-old sits across from me on the couch, ankles crossed, leaned back and confidently rocking her pink and teal mix-matched pajamas. Her curls fall out of messy pigtails and sheโ€™s grinning from ear-to-ear as she watches a video starring her as a baby. Her chubby hands grip my phone and sheโ€™s singing along to the familiar soundtrack. She loves watching her story unfold on the screen and lately sheโ€™s been asking to watch the video more and more.

I watch her in quiet awe, and I feel sentimental wondering how long sheโ€™ll be like this.
