Owning it.

 I talked to my oldest grand daughter on the phone today. She's four. She had a new haircut, and she was excited about that. I asked her about school and she began to relate a story about a little boy that she didn't like so much because he wouldn't stop chasing her at recess, and "she had to run faster than she wanted to", and he did it for all the recess.

I said, "You know what though? I wouldn't run. I would not run and I would tell him to quit chasing me."

Her mom said, "Tell grandma what you did." 

And all by herself, she had figured it out. If a four year old girl does not run, four year old boys don't waste time chasing them. 

"Good job!" I said. "Hooray for you!"

She's quite a confident little pipper pot.

  1. I love the way four year old brains work. Maybe they should be in charge.

  9. Maybe that will work with our former president - maybe if we ignore him he will go away or stop running!?!!
