She Worries About Her Looks...Oh My!

Our girl, Madison, is growing up.  A couple of recent incidents have given us a sneak peek into what we may be facing in the future.

The first incident happened during Madison's first session of Vacation Bible School.  At the end of the week, Madison brought home the crafts that she'd made during the week.  When she pulled out a framed photograph of herself, she began to cry.  She cried because she didn't like the way her photograph looked! 

I didn't witness this incident, but I was shocked when Madison's mom told me about it.  Since when does a four-year-old worry about taking a "bad picture"? 

The second incident happened at our house-- over a Wii game.  Madison refused to bowl because she didn't like the way her little person looked on our Wii!  She said "the eyes don't look right!"  Despite the fact that we changed "the eyes", she still didn't like the way she looked!  You've got to be kidding me!!  All of this drama over "looks" at age four? 

MiMi says..."Oh my!  These next twelve years may prove to be interesting."  Did you notice the photo of Madison at the top of this post?  Madison took it of herself...

I'm sure it won't be long before she realizes that it's what's on the inside that counts. :-)

It's terrible how such little ones are somehow taught the don't measure up. We need to tell them many -many times just how beautiful they are.

Where did she get the idea she doesn't like the way she looks! That would disturb me.
