Permission Granted.

April 4, 2014


She watched as two of her siblings left with permission slips in hand. When all the morning hubbub of a family of ten subsided she came over with four year old sincerity, “I need permission slips too”. She handed me a purple marker and a stack of sticky notes.
“Where are you going? What do I need to write this out for?” I waited thinking of the two I had signed this morning.
I didn’t expect her answer .. but when I saw them in front of me I realized we all need to write ourselves a permission slip … maybe everyday.

    Yes! Wow – this was an amazing insight from your four year old! We do need permission slips every day – permission to try, permission to fail, permission to write, permission to laugh, permission to just be. And son on… I love this!!

      well I think she has no idea what those permission slips her brother and sister took meant…
      so her interpretation of the idea is awesome!!
