Out of the mouths of babes

Tue, October 31, 2006


Rachel is a worrier from the get-go.

Who knew that a little six-year-old brain could hold so much tsuris? Isn’t she still supposed to be at a carefree age where your troubles should be limited to whether you get chocolate milk at lunch or which Disney princess to be for Halloween?

So we thought that maybe if we could convince Rachel to write down some of her worries (actual writing help provided by us, of course), that maybe the act of putting them down on paper would get them out of her brain, at least for a little while.

Some were serious, some were amusing. But my favorite one was this:

“I am worried that my dream about the boys taking over the world will come true.”

Oh, Rachel!! If you only knew!

    Oh, Man! Don’t ruin her Halloween by telling her the scary truth…

    We can only hope that by the time she grows up her fears will be unfounded!

    Wow, she’s pretty perceptive, isn’t she? I didn’t figure out the boys are taking over the world until I hit college, at least. ;-)

    LOL! That is just too much! What a spitfire she is!

    P.S. Great idea to have her write them down!

    Really? I’ve taken over the world? That means I must have subconsciously chosen the light blue and pale pink sofa pattern and frilly window coverings for the living room. Fancy that. :)

    Course my ex has them all now, so it’s all a moot point.

    Oh, take care of that dear child, tell her that growing food makes her strong enough to take on the world! Heavens do they figure this one out young.

  8. Anonymous Says:

    Classic! She’s already figured it out.

    I hope the lesson worked. So just how does a parent temper a good healthy dose of optimism with a good healthy dose of reality?

    Me? I’ll be glad to share, and will tell the guys to make room for Rachel!
