Self-Esteem


Need some? We got plenty. At least Bo does, anyway. We were filling out and coloring his "All About Me" 1st grade poster last night for school, and we came to the the last section that says "3 Super Cool Facts About Me." I said, "Bo, tell me something super cool about you." He takes his pencil and writes, as he says "I am good like Michael Phelps!"

"Ok, yeah. Yes, you are a great swimmer, Bo! Now name something else...you like to help oth-"

"I AM AWESOME AT BASEBALL!" he says, and he writes that one, too.

I jump in a little quicker after this one. "Bo, I know a good one! How about 'I am a good friend to others'?"

He kind of stares through me for a minute, like I just stole his thunder or something, and says, "Ok, will you write that one?" And he runs off to play.

Hmmmm....

You'll have to make sure you save the poster so you can pull it out when he is 18. His comments made me smile, too cute.

I think we all need to answer that question, Three Super Cool Facts about me - actually, do it every year and see how it changes. That would even be better! Fun stuff.

At least he didn't compare himself to some of the less perfect baseball role models. Love the interaction, currently my girls just talk to me.. when I say talk I mean chirp and squeak!
