Is there an aspect of your daughter's personality that you admire, or wish you had yourself?

 Isn't it inspiring when they are so inquisitive?

Quoting celshep:

She is sooooo inquisitive! She has to know how and why. She sees the little details in things that I tend to overlook. I wish I could slow down and enjoy life the way she does, instead of trying to rush to get everything done. It's such a wonderful quality to have.

My dd is just like me.  Except she is even more stubborn and head strong.  She knows what she likes and does not like and is very vocal about it.  I used to be like that before I got married and started my career.  Now, I tend to keep my ideas and opinions inside.  I wish I could be more vocal like her.

My DD is the same way. I too wish i could be more straight forward. Things would be much easier, plus I think that leads to less disappointment.

Quoting MaddieLainesMom:

I wish I was as spunky and outspoken as my daughter. Being aable to be straight-frward with people and speak my mind would come in handy instead of shying away from confrontation.

Mine either. Usually when people need comforting, I'm not sure what to do.

Quoting Supervane:

She's very compassionate, It's not one of my strong points

Don't you just love the stubbornness? My daughter has her days of having a temper and being stubborn as well.

Quoting Mrs.Andrews:

I see a LOT of me in her. I only wish she wasn't so stubborn and didn't have such an angry streak. Other than that, I love every part of her. She is so outgoing, strong, happy, loving, and creative.

Do you get the "why? Why? Why?". At least you welcome her questions. Many parents get frustrated and brush their kids questions off with an "I don't know".

That's something to be thankful for. Though there is always time for her to get a wild streak later in life. LOL!

At a young age, kids just seem to care less about others opinions. And i wish it could stay that way forever.

She used to ask the neverending "why why why", but usually my answers were good enough for her! I home-school, so it's most definitely my job to answer any and all questions my children have... I am their teacher!
The only time I ever became truly annoyed of the WHY or WHEN questions was when we were on vacation and all three children were asking them at the same time while we were in the van for hours. The physical exhaustion and boredom from the car ride was not a good combination on any of our moods!
