Real Simple magazine has dubbed this week "Be Nice On The Internet Week." OK, I'll play along. It's only a week.
They suggest swapping out the acronym WTF's usual meaning with "Why That's Fabulous," which totally went along with my planned post.
My neighbor knocked on my door to invite the kids out to ride their bikes.
"Natalie. Go upstairs and put on some sneakers! Hurry!" Five minutes later she came out like this.
Sneakers, yes. Also, teal eye shadow, bright pink blush in rosy little circles on the wrong part of her cheeks and perfectly applied pink lip gloss.
And so I say "WHY, THAT'S FABULOUS!" Because it really is. I love that this kid is completely her own person. She's self-confident and willing to take risks. And at home I allow it. Am I going to love this when she's in high school? Probably not, but right now she can wear anything she wants to ride her bike as long as she's wearing her helmet.
