Guest Post!

As part of the Great Big Bloggy Post Exchange (GBBPX), I have a guest post from no other than Julie. Here's her great post below! My guest post is at Bobbi's blog zeroto26.2. Take a gander!

Hi, my name is Julie and I'm so excited to be guest blogging here on Karen's blog. You can find me blogging at where I spend a lot of time talking about my family, our adventures and the sport of triathlon. Whenever someone asks what my blog is about, I always come back to this interview I did with my daughter two years ago when she was five years old. Her simple love for self came shining through and I like to think that my blog is a full circle journey of my own life coming back to a simpler place, where if someone were to ask me if I like myself I could follow Mai's lead and say "Yes. Lots."

An interview with Mai (Age:5):

Julie: Hi Mai.
Mai: Hi Mama. You ready?

J: Ok, here we go. How old are you?
M: 5.

J: What's the best thing about being a girl?
M: I like wearing eye shadow.

J: Do you love yourself?
M: Ya.

J: What do you love most about yourself?
M: I like that I can play on my swingset.

J: Do you not like anything about yourself?
M: NO!

J: What's the favorite part of your body?
M: My head ~ because I can think. I can think about math, my stuffed animals, my mom, and what I'm going to do tomorrow.

J: What's the least favorite part of your body, if you have one?
M: My feet.

J: Why your feet?
M: Because you can't decorate them very much - just polish. Plus - they stink.

J: Are you a happy person?
M: Ya - I'm a real happy person. Like, if we lose our house, we don't have to worry because we have lots of family and neighbors to help us.

J: Do you have any worries?
M: I think my great grandma's going to die when she's 100. I got a book that says humans only live to about 75 and she's 87.

J: Are you scared to die?
M: Yes, because I'll miss my cousins. I have a little baby cousin named Evan and I know I'm going to die before him 'cause he's younger.

J: Do you ever look in the mirror?
M: Yes, when I'm putting on my eyeshadow.

J: Do you like what you see?
M: Yes.

J: If you could change anything about yourself, what would you change?
M: My clothes.

J: So you like who you are?
M: Yes. Lots!
