‘What other people think about you has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them.’ I love this quote – I can’t remember who said but I try and live by it.
My son had a school disco in Year 1. He was excited about it because he loved to dance but also because he could hang with this friends after school. I said I was coming to help as a parent volunteer and I hoped he was ok with that. He said yes that was good and would I dance with him too? I said of course if he wanted me to dance with him, I would. (Although quietly I was hoping he would forget!)
