Bennett ran into his friend at a super cool, [loud-not-annoying-at-all] kids event we took him to last weekend.
[I’ll spare you the details]…
This friend of his pointed at me and asked my son if I was his mom.
She looks dumb.
When my kiddo was telling me this, I could see he was worried. He asked if it hurt my feelings & I very matter-o-factly told him …
I am very aware that I’m not dumb – someone’s words do not make me feel bad about myself.
Who knew being called dumb by an 8 year old would result in such a nice lesson.
I’m glad we had that talk.
