Moments, Things I Hope My Kids Will Read One Day

The dog at the park said I’m not fun.

October 15, 2017

Me: I’m sure that wasn’t nice to hear, Maggie, but you shouldn’t let that opinion upset you so much.
Maggie: “I think I’m fun—I love to play!”
Me: You are fun and it’s important for you to remember that you don’t know the condition of that dog and the condition of a dog has all to do with that dog’s opinions.
Maggie: “What?”
Me: That dog may have heartworms that have damaged their heart in ways you can’t see on the outside or they could have something annoying them like a flea infestation or knots in their fur or painful thorns in their paws. Maybe they’re just having a bad day, whatever the reason, the point is you don’t know their condition so you shouldn’t let another dog’s opinion affect how you feel about you, okay?
Maggie: “Okay, Mom, I’ll think about all that right after this nap.” 

Okay, silly puppy. ☺️
