I was inspired by my friend at Autism in Our House when she wrote I wish I was the kind of girl who… yesterday.
And that’s just it! I wish I was the kind of girl who:
+ could create the smoky eye look without looking like I got punched. When other people do it for me, it looks great. However, I should not be left to my own devices on such matters.
+ didn’t get motion sickness. I love planes, trains, and automobiles! I love to go. I don’t want to be sick en route, though.
+ enjoyed fruit. Seriously. Who doesn’t like fruit? This girl. Why, oh why? Texture issues. Ick!
+ could go a whole day without looking at the new house. Those poor workers probably get tired of seeing me drive up every few hours.
+ could braid my hair. I’d love to be able to braid my own hair in any capacity, but it would really be fun to be able to do cool braids.
+ was less cautious and a little more try-it-on-a-whim. I want to be spontaneous. I want to climb to the top of the rope swing and jump into the river. I want to climb big slides. I want to set that example for my son, who is now quite cautious himself.
