I tried to distract, “Mama, I wanna color my toes with boo paint”
I tried to delay, “After dinner, sweetie”
I tried to do it instead, “No mama, I wanna”
I knew it was going to be a hot mess.
I knew deep inside I was cringing at the thought.
I knew if I didn’t though, I would be hindering her.
I took a deep breath, and then reminded myself.
I need to let her experiment in her attempts to be like me…then I need to let her be herself.
In typing this up, after looking at the picture, I decided it would make a great quoted picture for my wall (isn’t that the best, I thought it would be a hot mess & it actually turned into a perfect mess :)
