So this morning while I was driving her to kindergarten TLo announced, "Darius says that I'm the hottest girl in school. Last week Esteban said my sissy is the hottest girl at her school." Esteban and her sissy are in first grade.
Okaaay. I decided to play it cool and smooth. Qualities I'm known for.
"So, what does that mean if you're the hottest girl in school?"
"Well…. it means you're a good friend and say nice things about people… and help people and... you're kind to others... and you're good at your sight words and your plusses and writing your letters."
"Wow. Those are all really good things to be, huh?"
Wouldn't it be nice if for just a little while longer, the hottest girl was the girl who was kind and sweet and smart?
