Face Paints and Castles
During all the Jubilee celebrations, Diva got to attend a few parties. One of these was for a friend’s birthday. The party was in the local leisure centre and included food, bouncy castle, toys, dressy up clothes and face painting.
Diva loves a good bouncy castle, and this was a big bouncy castle. She did not want to come off. In fact she was the last child at the party to have her face painted, because she did not want to leave the bouncy castle. By the time she sat down to choose what her face would become, there was a room of butterfly, fairy, flower and cute puppy dog faces. When asked what Diva would like her face to be painted as, she answered, “A hippo.”
“I’m not sure I have a hippo in my face painting book,” replied the confused face painter.
“But I want to be a hippo,” insisted Diva.
“Why don’t we look through the book for something else.”
“No thank you. I want to be a hippo.”
The poor face painter girl turned to Diva’s Daddy for assistance, “I can only do it if I have a picture.”
So Hubby looked up a picture of how to do hippo face paint on google (Not to be confused with a face painted hippo. That is something completely different).
Diva really liked her hippo face. She showed EVERYONE. The face painting girl said to Diva, “Wow! I like your hippo face. Do you think everyone else will want to have a hippo face now?”
“No,” said Diva.
As far as she’s concerned, Diva has no wish to copy anyone else, so why would anyone would want to copy her?
I love my (stubborn) independent girl.
