Stop Giving a F*ck

Updated: Dec 21, 2018

I love this quote and wish I could figure out who coined it—What others think of you is none of your business.

Too often, we get sucked into the trap of caring what others think—me included. Today was "Dress like your favorite book Character" day at Rowan's school. He showed up sans costume.

I'm sure it looks like I plain forgot. What is not shown is the multiple rounds of bunny costumer orders from Amazon or the four costumes we tried on this morning. Let's just say that having a fiercely opinionated 3-year old is fun.

I was prioritizing looking like a 'together mom' over my kid's preferences. Rowan didn't want to be dressed up. 

Next time, I'll take a page from my rebellious child and send him as Rowan. He does have a personalized book with him as the central character. Who can blame a kid for just wanting to be himself?
