i have a thing about adults telling kids that they’re “really mature” for their age or that they’re “not really” kids. i think it just sets them up for some unhealthy expectations about themselves for the rest of their lives - i know that shit happened to me because i had to grow up fast to translate for my parents and take care of myself when they couldn’t because of language and resource inaccess.
it’s important for our kids to know it’s okay for them to be kids
these days i’m really trying to remember to let my 9 year old sister know she is still a kid even when she is the tallest and biggest in her classes and is constantly mistaken for and expected to be a teenager.
this shit is just so important, especially for kids of color, little girls of color who start facing fucked up shit far too young because the rationalization is that they’re “really mature” for their age.
can’t wait till it’s leather jacket weather again
*gets on tiptoes to whisper into dairy cow’s ear* why ya titty out
How short are you that you need to stand on your toes to talk to a cow?
Looks like we got ourselves a city slicker
How freaking talk are your cows? My cousins own a dairy farm and the cows are about chest height.
You sure talk a lot of shit for someone whose cousin has short cows
