Today, my daughter went on a field trip to the skating rink. She was so confused about what a skating rink actually was. (First time skating) This morning she said, "Mom, I'm gonna be scared". I said why? She said, "Because I might fall!" I told her it was OK to fall and just to get back up and try it again. She seemed OK with that. When I picked her up from school she told me that she fell a lot of times, but got back up and kept skating. She had a BLAST!! I just wish I was there to see it.
Anyway, on another note...my daughter is having such a hard time understanding the different races. It's almost sad and heartbreaking that I even have to explain it to her, but I guess that's just life. It's funny to hear a 4 yr old try to make sense of all the different shades of the African American race. She says Mommy is white, Daddy is black, and she calls herself light brown!! Poor kid!! LOL!!
