Big Shoes to Fill

Ruby's loves to wear Linnea's shoes.
Whenever she does,
I remind Linnea that Ruby wants to be like her in 
just about every way
and that that's a big responsibility.

Ruby watches how Linnea does her hair,
how she sits,
what she wears,
how she talks,
and whatever else she does.

When I look ahead,
I think about how when Ruby is Linnea's age now,
Linnea will be 20.

My 10 year old daughter
will have a 20 year old sister--
who will hopefully still have a lot of influence on her.

What a big role Linnea can play in Ruby's and Ivy's life.
And those are big shoes to fill.
