When my son was 3, I was standing in front of the mirror trying on my shorts on a hot summer’s day.
“Ughhhhhh…. look at my legs!”
To which my son replied “What’s wrong mum? They work perfectly”.
This week, my 3 year old niece was told that she would be having her first haircut. After a few minutes of contemplation she said, “But everyone like’s me the way I am”.
Both of those comments stop me in my tracks. They make me question what happened to my own 3 year old wisdom?
When did the functionality of my body (legs that work) or my value as a person who makes others happy (with or without a haircut) get lost?
