My daughter says the most amazing things and she knows how to get me to slow down. This morning we went out for breakfast. While we were eating breakfast she turned and asked me…
“Why is your heart not really shaped like a heart? Do adults have broken hearts?”
I got all teary eyed and thought, I want nothing more than for you to never feel a broken heart. I know that’s not possible. I can honestly say, my heart probably breaks once a year at least, if not more. Sometimes the reality of our choices, internal and external things and people… They all have an impact. Sometimes this impact gives us broken hearts that we try to heal… Or bandage up hoping it doesn’t split open again. I’m good with band-aids, sometimes I wish I was better at healing.
Last night we watched “Mobbed”. She turned to me and asked …..
“Is this how everyone gets married!!!!???”
It’s obvious she’ll be expecting a lot from her someday partner. As her mother, I believe she deserves nothing less.
Earlier in the day she put out this little gem….
“Have you kissed a frog?”
“Have you kissed a little boy?”
“Have you kissed a prince?”
“I bet you’ve kissed a prince and just didn’t know it!”
She’s probably right and I probably let him go.
and finally earlier in the day…
She put this out for all to see. ( Me and Her Grandmother!)
“Rockstar” ::two middle fingers up right at us::
To be totally honest, I did have a hard time not laughing! I wanted to laugh. It was surprising, shocking, and funny. It was. I know, not all would find this funny. I did though. My girl has been giving people the finger since day one and that hasn’t changed one bit in almost five years. However, for the first time ever, I did give the talk about how that might offend people.
