“Mommy, look. This is my apex,” touching the tiny bridge of her nose.
A-what?? She got my complete attention immediately.
“Where did you learn that?”
“Teacher… and these are the wings,” pointing to the sides of her nose.
“Good job! What else?”
Wowza! She knows something I don’t! Pre-school tuition officially worth it!
“These are my nose-trils,” sticking her peace fingers in each one.
Ok parents and teachers still need to work hand in hand.
While brushing her teeth before going to school:
“Mom, you didn’t get mad.”
“You know why?”
“Because I’m following Mommy.”
“Isn’t it so much more fun when you follow Mommy?”
“Yes,” she whispers.
That exhale was a pledge. A pledge that she may know the law of the land but will dedicate her life to finding the loopholes.
Bring it, Little Libra. I’m smarter than I look.
