Interludes from K this week:
1) K sees someone on the street and says, “I think that person is a witch” (woman is wearing all black with a black hoodie that’s up, kind of like the point of a hat).
We pass the woman, K glances back and says, “no she’s not a witch.” I say “what does a witch look like?”
K says, “they wear a hat and they have angry eyes and an angry mouth.” – I’m so proud that she said nothing about physical appearance! Later that night she asked me to find some books about “nice witches.”
2) When talking about school:
K: I played with David and Dylan – they were the babies and I was the mommy. Then Dylan wanted to be the bad guy, so I protected David from him.
Me: Well that’s nice sweetheart. Did David also protect you? Did you protect each other?
K: No, because I wasn’t scared, so I didn’t need protection. I just protected David.
While I hope she’ll know to get help if/when she needs it, I’m so excited that she didn’t automatically need protection.
That’s my girl.
