Sometimes I envy my daughter. She’s two and she’s already way more out of her shell than I ever was when I was a kid. That girl is like the funniest person I have ever met! She dances when she feels like it. Sings whatever pops into her head. Wears whatever she wants with whatever she wants. And she makes the weirdest expressions while she rubs yogurt in her hair. Ahhhh to be a child.
First of all, I know kids are just kids. They don’t have a lot of fear in them and they are able to just express themselves without a lot of social constraints. But still…she’s got a freedom in her that it took me a long time to exhibit. I was the kind of kid who desperately wanted to be the class clown. The one who could get everyone’s attention easily and make everyone laugh. Instead I was the silent one. Once I tried out for a musical and I didn’t get the part because they said they couldn’t hear me when I spoke. Yeah, people can pretty much hear me from anywhere now. I guess it’s always been my goal to be much more like a kid in all the good ways as I grow up…to make up for all the times I wasn’t like a kid when I was younger.
So I dress how I like. Wear weird things and fluffy skirts. I try not to rub yogurt in my hair…but I definitely do take cues from my two-year-old :)
My wish for everyone is that they can have a little muse too…they are the most fun!! :)
