It's always interesting to learn about how your kids view you. I had the opportunity to see how I appear to my daughter. She had a writing assignment to write about someone she knows well. That someone was me. Here's how that went:
She said she loves me (that's good news!). She said I have blue eyes, peach skin, short brown hair, and I wear makeup. (Okay, that's pretty accurate.) She said I'm musical, and that I'm an author. (That's right too.) She even said I was polite because I always say "please" and "thank you." Then the fun stuff started.
She said I tell her to clean her room all the time (yep). She said I say "no" to the dog all the time (yep). She said I snuggle with the cat and that I love animals (well, sort of). She said I'm really busy, but added that she likes when I play with her. Here's what really made me laugh: She says I look really tired. She says I need a nap.
I couldn't agree more!
