the perfect 4 year old

Yes, another blog about being perfect, just the way you are. This perfection comes from my 4 year old, and reminds me that yes, I am a good mother. Yes, I know what's important. I am raising a confident girl who loves herself just the way she is.

My little girl wanted to share some of her morning snack with me. I thanked her and said I wasn't hungry, and that I was trying listen to my tummy. I told her my tummy knew I wasn't hungry. I said that the doctor had told me I was a bit too big and needed to exercise and eat less and lose weight to be healthy. She looked at me and said, "I don't need to lose weight, I'm perfect". I told her "You're right. You're perfect." I smiled, knowing I had taught her that.
