‘This face looks lovely’ my 5 year old said as she waited for her dad to pick up her facetime call.
I looked up to see whose face she was on about and realised she was referring to her own face.
I laughed out loud. I don’t know why but I was surprised at her confidence.
‘It does does it? How do you know?’ I asked
She looked up at me and said ‘because it is mum, look!’ And she ran her hand over her cheek with a grin of satisfaction.
‘It absolutely does’ I said, ‘You are right.’
She grinned from ear to ear.
I love the fact that she is so sure of certain things and is confident enough to voice them. For now I am happy with it but I do worry however about how it will translate in her teenage years.
100% human. 100% confident…borderline vain, may need bringing down to earth
