It is Haiku Friday at A Mommy Story
Wednesday was the first day of school for my kids. My bookworm who is always ready to roll wasted no time getting started on her homework in the car.
She was asked to fill out an interview, so the teacher could get to know her better. She read the interview questions out loud and would announce her answers as she wrote them down on her paper. The questions consisted of the usual; favorite color, favorite past times, and favorite foods. No surprises there, until she reached question number eight.
Question #8 - "If you could be a famous person who would you like to be?"
Her initial answer - "I just want to be myself."
I almost swerved off the road, could it be that my daughter is that content with herself?
I blurted out, "Write that down."
I just loved it. I couldn't wipe the smile of my face. In the time of Botox, dolled up teen stars and the media it's an uphill battle for girls to feel good about themselves. I am so thankful that my daughter is content to be herself. A great discovery for me on the first day of school.
