Self image and immaturity

Anya told me the other day that two boys told her she had an ugly face “and so does your mom,” they said. She didn’t even seem to care much. I asked, “What did you do?”

She replied, “I told on them.”
Me: Are you ok?
Anya: Yep. What’s for dinner?

I was more upset than she was. What’s with these kids?!

Although, I was impressed by the way she handled it.

Someone commented on my looks the other day and I boarded the worry train and rode it for two days straight. Guess I have a lot to learn about self image from my 8-year-old daughter.
