Kat and two of her kids came over Thursday afternoon for lunch & a visit. We were in my kitchen eating and Kat was admiring my IKEA bar stools. OK, admiring might be a strong word. We were discussing the bar stools. I am quite proud of my bargain find. They aren't totally ugly, but for the $15 I paid for each one, it won't be tragic if something happens to them. I digress...
Kat mentioned that she liked them and said "We should get some for our house." Lydia was astounded.
"Kat," she imparted,"You shouldn't that. You shouldn't do things just because other people are doing them. You need to be your own person. You've got to be like yourself, not like others." She gave us an encouraging smile and went back to her corn dog that she had carefully peeled down to the dog.
We were speechless.
As I've thought about this for the last few days, it explains so much about that child. I asked her where she learned that & she told me she just knew that's what you should do. What a kid!
|What a doll!|
|So sweet at times...|
|Explaining what I should be doing.|
|She can pout with the best of them!|
|She loves to twirl!|
|Her favorite outfit!|
