Yesterday my 1st grader and I were trying to hurry to get to school.Â I helped her get dressed and brushed her hair like I do every morning. It’s just something that we do every morning.
Admittedly, this was all my fault.
I hurried her out the door her hair was brushed but because she had gone to sleep with it wet the night before it had a hard time staying down and I guess you could say by the end of the day it looked like it wasn’t.
Last night she came to me and told me she wanted to pick out her own outfit and after searching through her room for a while came up with an outfit that I thought was super cute. She said I just want to be good enough. I agreed her outfit choice was “good enough” and she went to bed happy with her outfit prepared for the morning.
This morning she woke up and as we do every morning I went to brush her hair. Concerned she said “will you please make my hair look nice today. It needs to be good enough.” Then she told me about how she was teased about her hair yesterday. All day long the other girls teasing her about her hair.
My heart broke.
But I held back my tears and helped her be “good enough”.
Here she is.
