My daughter’s teacher approached my husband and I at a school function the other night and told us how much she just loves our little girl.
We beamed, as parents of awesome kids tend to do…
…and then the teacher told us, exactly, why she “just loves” her:
She’s still acts her age, you know? She doesn’t try to act seven going on 17 like the rest of my girls.
If you ask her something fun or silly, she will meow like a cat and scamper away or hop like a bunny.
She plays like little girls at this age should play. She’s still a little girl and I just love that…I wish they all were like that. They SHOULD be.
It was then I think we were even MORE proud.
It is not easy to keep our daughters from worrying about boys, clothing, or how they look in this day and age. I’m glad to know that my husband and I have survived keeping her some-what innocent for a tiny bit longer. I say that with her eighth birthday just around the corner.
What I would give for her kitty meowing days to last forever.
