"Moms and their kids don't have to match."

Third day of preschool. Yes, I did have to take another picture of Grace.
I also had to chat with Grace a little about other kids...specifically, other kids who say things that aren't really that nice. I figured it would take a little time at preschool before someone would say something that was hurtful. I was wrong. I forgot how outgoing Grace can be. She marched up to a little girl and asked her if she wanted to "be my friend?" The little girl looked at Grace and said "No."
I am sure this comment was only a typical little kid comment...nothing to do with race...right?
Well, it got me thinking. It got me and Grace talking. I asked her if it was alright that she and I don't "match." She looked at me like I was crazy and said, "Mom...moms and their kids don't have to match." OK. Good. She understands that. I am sure of it. The way she runs into my arms when I pick her up from preschool assures me of that.
Now if only I could "run into" that little girl that doesn't want to be Grace's friend....

"Moms and their kids don't have to match." - Grace


  1. She's precious! The more I read about her the more I'm certain that she and my daughter Graysen would be best of friends! The way she poses in the pictures and her statements...sound just like my Graysen! :0) Tell her I'm GLAD people don't always match...how boring life would be!!!

  2. This girl is gonna THRIVE no matter what life throws at her! And that other little girl... well... she just doesn't know what she's missing!!!

  3. That makes my heart happy! She gets it!

  4. I think you "match" perfectly. :0)

  5. She is a special child. I love your blog and will be back to follow your adventure. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  6. Good for her for knowing that!
