We try to make sure our kids understand this concept.
Just the other day I was getting Stevie ready for her basketball game.
She needed help putting her hair into a ponytail.
After I was done she was looking through Kayla's hair accessories.
She had some of those athletic headbands
that keep the 'fly-a-ways' out of your face.
Stevie felt she needed to wear one.
There was a variety to choose from, all by "NIKE".
She asked me:
S - "Mom, do you think I should wear
the one that says UNSTOPPABLE or just NIKE?"
M - "I don't know, which one do YOU think you should wear?"
S - "I think I'll wear UNSTOPPABLE because mom,
I AM unstoppable."
(she was totally serious)
It doesn't help that she's the tallest girl on the team
and is the only one that can even reach the basket
never mind MAKE a basket.
A little chat was in order. :)
