I Like

Last week, the Mrs. showed me an in-class assignment that "Sissy" our kindergartener had completed.

The teacher asked each student to: "Complete the following sentence and then draw a picture that represents what you like."

The top of the paper had this sentence, and the bottom was her corresponding crayon drawing:

I like _________________________.

So, how does Sissy finish the sentence?

With this:

I like my hair                     .  

And then she drew a picture of her playing outside her home in pig-tails.

Yes, she is evidently geeked about her long brown hair.

A glam girl spreads her wings, and leaves the nest.

And no, I would not have answered the same way.

I'd need to alter the sentence to something like: "I miss my hair," and then it would be representative of my current situation.

That is so cute. My son had one of those when he was younger. A like page. One was my mom likes... and he put...to go out on dates. lol

SuziCate said...

Adorable! Hope it continues when she's a teenager...that's when the bad hair days take flight!

julie fedderson said...

Aww, that's actually really cute. My kindergartner had to do this too! Except he put that he liked Twisted Metal. Must have conversation with Hubs about what they are playing on the PS2, or I will be raising the next Nascar star.

Oh, that is just too cute!

Mommy Lisa said...

Awww. Yeah Boo Boo loves her hair and Daddy wonders where his went too. ;) And lately he is threatening to dye it, he turns 50 next month.

Jenny said...

Oh, sweet! Good for a girl to have self-confidence!

And, don't worry, dad, bald guys are hot!

Brian Miller said...

haha too cute...i miss assignments like this by my boys...

Little Ms. Fun said...

LOL That's too cute! Wait until she discovers hair dye, hair straighteners, and all the other products that destroy it. My generation is going to be bald by the age of 40. Too cute :)

Jeanette Levellie said...

Oh, how funny! When I was five I would have said my doll, or my Flintstone vitamins; this shows a good self-esteem on your daughter's part.

So sorry your hair de-parted...

Diane said...

Love that innocence. Makes me wonder if she is a Rapunzel lover... :O)

A Doc 2 Be said...

Hahaha - thanks for making me laugh!

Maxi said...

You're in a bit o' a pickle Slam. How ya gonna draw the hair that ya like when it has disappeared?

Ed Pilolla said...

hahaha! that's how i would say it, too. i do miss my long, thick hair.
that's so fun and inspiring to see a child be happy with what she has so simply: her beautiful hair. this is how we are naturally, i think. then the crazy money men will get to her with marketing and hope to change her answer in a few years to 'my clothes' or 'more money' or something:)
very cute post. i needed it something light and insightful today:)

Jennifer Hillier said...

So cute!

And hey, nothing at all wrong with a girl liking her hair. I like mine. :)

Clarissa Draper said...

I think I would have put 'my hair' if the line was _____ annoys me. That's so cute.

ZaSu said...

I had braids when I was in kindergarden. My best friend had a pixie haircut. I took the scissors and cut one pigtail off. I cried for a week.
I love these posts of your family. They always make me smile.

terri said...

You have a girl who likes her own hair. Remind her of this time a few years down the road because I guarantee she will eventually come to hate it. We all do.

hahah uh-oh, hide your wallet now! You potentially have a Glamazon (like you said) on your hands! haa, that's really cute. And hey, I wouldn't worry about losing your hair! All of my guy friends who are starting to lose their hair are freaking out about it, to me it just seems like a normal aspect of male aging, doesn't detract from the Guy at all!

Pat Hatt said...

cute assignment, maybe you could like your hairless head, as it could shine..haha

thedailydish said...

You & my husband both! Yesterday my youngest told me the same thing. "I like my hair." Or maybe it was "I love my hair." Then she started whipping it back and forth like the dancers in the Charlie Brown cartoons. These little girls and their hair. Can you imagine if they could grow mustaches?!

That's really cool of your preschooler.
While I don't miss my hair (I know where it's been and where it's going), I DO miss having the THICKER hair I once had.

I also miss the innocence your daughter displays with the simplicities of life.

Amd why does the scalp hair "migrate" to places people don't really NEED (or desire) hair???

I swear, if I could figure THAT one out, I'd be a millionaire (and be taxed accordingly, no doubt)...lol.

Very nice post.
Stay safe.

Lisa said...

A fashionista in the making. It's best to accept it, embrace it and get ready for lots of "product" in the future. :-) Just fair warning from a mom of two daughters.

Dan said...

Long ago when the son was wee, he did a similar exercise with the sentence "I like Beauregard." (Beauregard was his dog.)

Sometimes their minds move in interesting channels.

Langley Cornwell said...

That's funny. The girl knows what she likes.

Elisabeth Hirsch said...

Sooo darling. This made me smile :0)

Bonnie said...

Hahahaahahaahaha. I think I would love your daughter. I like my hair, too.

Kerry said...

Pig tails are awesome! What a great response.

Cricket said...

My (former) kindergartener liked pineapples. So much so that when I tucked him in, instead of wishing him "sweet dreams" or the like, I had to wish him dreams of pineapples.

A cute story that brought me back a bit. Congratulations on your potw.
