Right now Princess A doesn’t care about what people think of her. If she wants to dance around and sing in public she does. If she wants to try and steal food off of other people’s plates she does. If she wants to get naked in public she does. And if she wants to wear her bib like a cape she does. She does not care what people think of her at all. She can also get away with this behaviour because well she’s a baby. The only other people who can get away with this kind of crazy are rock stars and honestly after being a mom for 15 months I can’t tell the difference between a baby and a heavy metal rock band’s party habits. Actually, I can… babies party way harder!
Who says my bib can't be a cape?
While sometimes Princess A’s confident apathy for politeness or caring what people think can be annoying, most of the time it is refreshing to be around someone who has no filter and is too busy shouting and doing somersaults in public to be bothered by negativity. Yesterday, we were in animal class and a 5 year old boy started acting like an elephant. It was so cute I chuckled. He got upset, slouched, and stopped being an elephant. As soon as I realized this I told him I was laughing because his elephant act was so good. He didn’t believe me and thought I was making fun of him.
This is how I sit so what?
So I wonder at what age to kids become aware and start caring about other people’s opinions in regards to themselves? And is there anyway to keep some of a baby’s innocent “I don’t give a F***” attitude?
