My Mini-Me {The Ordinary Moments}

LP has always looked like me. From the moment she was born with a full head of bright ginger hair, to the toddler with bunches. And now, LP is five, with long straight hair just like mine used to be. She’s so petite and has my eyes. I know, looking at her, that she is a little version of me – I can’t see much of her Daddy in her – but her nature is definitely her own.

But LP loves looking like Mummy. She loves that we have the same hair and that she can draw us using the same colour crayons. She loves to play Mummy too and will always mother her toys – and her brother – when I’m at work.

But, one thing LP loves more than anything is to wear glasses to be like Mummy. She sees them as the best fashion accessory and since getting a pair of Minnie Mouse frames, minus the lenses, she wears them as much as she can, loving that she looks just like me – in miniature.

These photos aren’t the best, I took them quickly at dinner – when LP refused to take her glasses off and insisted on sitting next to me too. But, the photos sum up LP, looking just like me and loving every minute of it.

It’s so funny, as looking at her, with her glasses on, is like looking at me when I was that age. I used to have my hair in bunches, wear my NHS specs and would constantly have a smile on my face. But, I hated wearing glasses so I love that LP really likes to wear them, even if she doesn’t need to wear them. She thinks that glasses are the best thing ever and I think that must do wonders for the confidence of her school friends who do wear glasses. If only I could have been more like LP when I was five!

  1. She is just as gorgeous as her mummy! I have major hair envy, so striking. I love that she wants to be just like you (and so she should) x x

  2. Little M is getting his first glasses on Monday and we are hoping he doesn’t mind wearing them all the time, especially at nursery. I should have worn glasses when I was younger to improve my eyesight but my parents were worried about me being bullied at school, so my eyes didn’t get better. I am sure it wouldn’ have been a problem as at the time I was also going to ballet lessons – so having a patch on one eye wasnt likely to be my biggest challenge at school! Lol.

  3. The glasses really suit her! I love that she wears them even though she doesn’t need them. And how lovely that she looks so much like you. Nerys is such a mix of so many members of our family, and with her blond hair I can’t really see myself in her at the moment. She definitely has some of my nature though, poor stubborn little thing! x

  4. Oh my goodness this is the cutest! Look at her little face and she really is a mini you. Holly looks like me and Alice looks like her daddy. But Alice is desperate to look like me and will always say I look like my mummy and I just nod along as I don’t have the heart to say we don’t really. We have the same eyes and thats about it. x

  5. She is adorable!! I love the fact she wants to wear glasses – I was the same as a child and was always disappointed when I didn’t need them. My three look more like their dad than me, but I occasionally see glimpses of me in them, and I love it! #ordinarymoments
