Temporary Tattoos

My daughter Lemon Drop - age 5 - (and not her real name!) is always "a little nervous". She isn't really scared of the normal things... the dark or someone hiding in her closet... she is scared of doing somersaults, going to college, and temporary tattoos. She will happily watch her friends do these things (well not the college part), but she will never, ever participate. So this week we had a giant breakthrough, she is no longer afraid of temporary tattoos. I am not sure what made her change her mind, but she has been proudly sporting a Chuck E. Cheese tattoo on her left hand most of the week. This may seem like a little thing to you, but to a woman who had to escort her daughter out of dance class for failing to cooperate at tumbling time, this is a huge step. Harvard here she comes!
