I wrote this post about a year ago when I was angry about how quickly we can judge each other without thinking. Exclusively through the look or the way we walk or talk.
But yes my oldest daughter has a little “fat on the stomach”, but she is actually very active and can max sit quietly in front of an ipad for an hour, so she has to go out and move physically.
She always got her ass kicked, but she might need days where she’s just in nightwear all day and have to play with dolls or draw or paint a whole day where to stress off.
So what exactly are the many “I just know much better than you” mothers just having to teach me about my own daughter ??
I simply just don’t know anything worse than “mommy slamming”.
My oldest daughter started for Soccer last year, and she loves it.!
So to all of you mothers who are so damned sorry about what my daughter looks like, I would just like to mention that she cycles to school everyday, and there are probably small 3 kilometers each way, and in all kinds of clothes and she must bike cross 2 major and dangerous roads to and from school ..
How many of these “I’m so sorry” mothers couldn’t possibly just dream of doing well ?? so rather run their children from and to schools and other activates and under stimulate and suppress their children.
so a very ordinary week for my daughter will typically look like this. So I actually doubt that the “fat” she has on her stomach means that she lives unhealthy and eats too much candy and chips and too much typical Danish man.
(and the typical Danish food is not healthy I can just mention)
- She goes to school and actually has a very long day at school .. But she is actually quite good at school and actually does well. (Probably because she goes to a private school, it would have looked something different in a DANISH primary school)
- She cycles to school, almost every day. And actually has almost 3 kilometers each way to and from school and must, as I said, also cross 2 major and dangerous roads and yes she uses shame also bicycle helmet.
- She also eats healthy even though she has a very silly eating habit in the morning that she should have a Nutella food with a bacon on it.
So she is far from idle, but is a very uneducated and physically active girl of almost 9 years.
And no she does not have ADHD, she is a healthy and healthy happy girl who is a little more silly than her old mother.
But here last year to “Soccer camp” which the whole blog post is actually about.
Then my oldest daughter Rachel is actually used to winning the best friend of the year or week or month.
But here last year for “Soccer Camp” she decided to give that title to a completely different girl who needed it more than she herself had ..
My daughter feels just like me, she also thinks of others and puts others before herself and cares.
So I was just so proud of her when she gave her “best friend Title” to someone else ..
There was one of the other girls who were kept outside and the other girls didn’t like her because she was “different” and behaved “different”, but my daughter sees her helping another girl with her laces, so she say out loud I will vote for example XXX as a good friend on Friday (Best friend voted).
When she told it so she says. Actually, I’m probably the best friend but she needs it more than me.
Looking in there became her mother, just as even more proud of her as my daughter is good at averting a mobbing ..! Since she has learned that it is wrong and we should all be here.
Something that many parents and adult could learn from.
I am simply just so proud of my daughter.
