Photos courtesy of the 6 year old little man in my life.
The one I fondly refer to as Buddy Boo AKA Bruce.
He wanted to take some pictures of me. And he told me what to do in the last two pictures.
"Momma, make a serious face", "Ok, now, make a silly face".
I think I got serious down. Silly... I need to work on.
I prefer being calm, quiet, and serious.
Its not that I dont like being silly, I do.
But being the awkward person that I am... I dont feel like I can "pull off" being silly.
I just feel too shy and embarrassed. (YES even in front of just my kids!)
I KNOW isnt that kind of the point? To be silly and not care if what you do is embarrassing?
Sure, of course it is! Blame in on my insecure nature, and major lack of confidence in myself at times.
But for my buddy boo, yeah the one I called a brat yesterday, I am making an effort to be more silly.
To goof off and be ok with it.
To laugh at myself and at things. And just in general, to laugh!
To not take things too seriously, cause I do.
And I am sure living with a person like that can be a downer sometimes.
Though I wouldn't consider myself a downer, Im very much a optimist. ♥
I admit, though, I can definitely laugh a lot more than I allow myself to.
Ahh, the lessons you can learn from a 6 year old. Priceless.
So, what about you? Are you more of a silly, loud, goofy momma/person?
Or are you more like me, serious, quiet, calm?
