Keep your day job
Kiki sent me a photo of her "tattoo", she added that she thinks she wants to be a tattoo designer when she grows up. I cringed a little at the photo but I managed to ask what she had used to draw the "tattoo". She didn't answer but she assured that the ink is easily washable. I didn't want to encourage this tentative interest, neither did I want to judge or give it a bad comment. So I just said that she could design temporary tattoo (stickers) instead.
While walking to Colin's Phonics teacher's home for our weekly class, we will always walk past the huge canal that is next to St. Patrick's School, I took the time to share with him the Papa's story-- the Papa used to tell me that he and his friends would always jump into the canal for a swim as and when the tide came in, it was such fun; he recounted.
While I might imagine the carefree days of the past, I cannot imagine (nor encourage) teens to be doing that now.
Over-think extinguishes spontaneity.
