I guess I should say ‘young woman’ at this point, but she’ll always be my little girl. I don’t want to go into too many details because I know some of her friends like to keep up with everything here at Philaahzophy (you know who you are 😉 ), but Z did something yesterday and today that made me proud beyond belief.
She showed real guts, poise and self-confidence yesterday in a way that so very, very few of her peer group would ever be willing to do. And if that wasn’t enough…
Today she stood up to a bullyish/bratish “Heather”-type who was idiotic enough to claim that Z’s actions were “immature” and “so kindergarten” when the exact opposite is true. And I’m not just saying that as her father. What she did took guts as well as maturity. Not to mention that even though things didn’t go exactly as planned she still had the confidence to not only accept the reality of what happened without getting all whiny, but to stand up for herself and her actions.
That’s my girl!
