Adria is doing great in school. We just had her parent/teacher conference and she 's got all As and one B. I am a proud mama!!!
So her birthday was on Tuesday and she turned 9. I just can't believe my baby is 9. So we got together with her friends and went to the movies and out for pizza. The girls were all really well behaved and we had a great time!!!!
Adria's one friend got her this really cool necklace making kit. In the kit was string and beads and what not. So, Adria comes up last night and says she made a necklace with all these different animals that represent her. I'm thinking she's discovered her "spirit animal" or something. Boy was I wrong. The animals on the necklace represent a different traits of hers...for lack of a better term.
So here is the necklace....
Now on said necklace is an elephant, a whale, a giraffe, a lion and a seal.
My thoughts are okay, you're smart, you're huge, you have a long neck, you eat meat and I was really at a loss for the seal. Boy, was I WAY off.
"I made this necklace with animals that represent me. An elephant because I am LOUD. A whale because I can swim. I giraffe because I'm really tall. A lion because I'm really fast. And a seal because....(wait for it) I can balance things on my NOSE!!!"
So I asked her. You can balance stuff on your nose? Of course you can. How silly of me.
My first reaction was...pshaw...easy peasy. I was wrong. This takes skills that I do not have.
Next time I will have more faith.
