Melody over at Pennies In My Pocket
has started this lovely weekend tradition.
Self-Esteem Saturday or Sunday
I choose Sunday.
I am going to take an odd ball way around this one.
My college girl has been working on a dual major of Theater and English. And she has always wanted to write. But it is awful hard to sit and let all those ideas come flowing out in an organized manner. Yeah, I know they don't. Thoughts come out all jumbled this way and that way. And us "OCD" ones really do not like the mess they make.
So college girl is trying again this year to compete in NANOWRIMO. I am wanting to support her. Beside the cheer leading suit I wish I could wear for her there must be something else a frumpy ol' mom can do.
Wait? I have it!
I am going to join her in NANOWRIMO. This way we can have some friendly competition on who gets what word count daily. And maybe I can also exercise some demons of my own out of a story.
What does this have to do with Self-Esteem Sunday?
You know where life is all cheery and "Sunshine and Lemonade" (Small plug).
Well in my messed up head it is all related. I can support my college girl's self esteem by being in the trenches with her. And I think that is where I can do best as a mom. Sometimes that pat on the back comes best from the person beside you then the one up above you!
