It was so awesome last week when we were walking out of Eloise’s classroom and Astrid, after being silent the whole time we were there, said “you know, I don’t really like Mr. Porter.” And instead of being like “OMG Astrid that was so mean!” I said “She SPOKE OUT LOUD IN PUBLIC!” And Mr. Porter was like “she is just so adorable that I think her sisters need to tickle her extra hard tonight.”
Astrid pretty much hates talking to anybody. But when she is home we cannot shut the girl up. And damn she is funny. And opinionated. And wordy. And pushy. Oh and two.
Anyway, all of my girls started out shy. Hiding behind my legs. Hiding into my shoulders. Making me talk for them.
It’s never bothered me. It’s normal.
So when they reach a point where they do talk to other people and say things in the company of strangers then I honestly will even take the rude things.
And correct them later.
Because having others see that this adorable personality exists and watching my baby girl gain confidence is totally worth it. Even with the mean words.
Because in seven years when Mr. Porter is her teacher…he’s SOOO going to remember that comment and then she will totally get hers. HA!
It’s never too early to learn that paybacks are a bitch.
Favorite photo prop. Remember this one last year?
