Something else made my heart twinge more than the fact that Kayla wouldn't want to be friends with her older sister; As a child, I wouldn't have chosen to hang out with a kid like Jordan either. Unless, of course, she happened to run. ;)
Notice I said it made my heart twinge. It doesn't anymore. It's funny, I think before people have kids, everyone kind of pictures them as mini-clones of themselves. This is so not how it works.
Yes, if our kids are very different than we were (or are) life will probably be more challenging, but having Jordan as my daughter has helped open my eyes, my mind and especially my heart to all types of people.
Apparently my way is, and has never been, the only way. Huh... Who knew??
