One of my sons loved to wear rainbow colored moon boots to school every day – come rain or shine. Who was I to discourage such a free spirit? One day he came home from school and told me that the older boys at recess had called him "stupid boots". I told him I was sorry he had a bad day.
He replied, "I didn't have a bad day. I just had a bad two seconds. The rest of the day was great!"

And. . . my son wore those boots the next day and the next . . . until they were too small for him. Pin It

WOW! He sure knew how to handle that. What a life lesson to be taught here--don't sweat the small stuff.
