Last school year, Ella graduated from Kindergarten.
It signaled the end of her preschool years.
We might think that Kindergarten is all fun and games, just playing and singing.
But, surprisingly, it’s not.
Believe it or not, Kindergarten gave my eldest a little taste of the real world.
And it’s not just more assigned tasks to work on.
Ella likes to draw, My Little Pony characters specifically.
Naturally, she does that in school during breaks or dismissal.
One of her classmates saw her drawing.
That classmate said that it’s ugly.
Moms, what would you do in my shoes?
Why, draw a spider, of course!
We had a heart-to-heart talk of sorts.
I didn’t want to say something bad about that classmate, nor do I want to say her drawing was pretty.
I just told her that things like this happen, and that other people’s opinions could be different from hers.
But what’s important is what Ella thinks of her own drawings, and how she could make them better.
I don’t want to let something like that stop her from doing what she loves, and that is to draw what she loves, ponies!
Do you think I said the right thing?
That’s how I got inspired to write about Rainbow, the spider.
My daughter, she’s a colorful and enthusiastic precious gem.
I wish that this experience of hers didn’t dampen her spirit.
I wish she would soar above what others think, now and until adulthood.
For me, she’s like this rainbow-fied spider.
With rainbow dots and rainbow stripes.
And always a smile on her face.
I love her so much!
I dedicate this book to her.
