You can’t beat 6 year old logic, so you might as well share it!!
The Day Before
6 Yr Old: “Mom is tomorrow International Women’s Day?”
Me: “Yes, it certainly is!”
6 Yr Old: “Well what do you plan to do….be the awesome woman you are everyday?!”
Me: “That’s exactly what I plan to do!”
6 Yr Old: ” Me too. We are awesome!”
Me: “Clearly my work here is done!!!”
*pats self on back*
On Creating Her Own International Day
Me: “Happy International Women’s Day!”
6 Yr Old: “Thanks, but I am not a 37 year old woman.”
Me: “Oh, I see. When does one become a woman then?”
6 Yr Old: “Um, probably around 30.”
Me: “Oh, well what are they before that?”
6 Yr Old: “29!”
6 Yr Old:
Me: “So I see you not big on labels then. Fair enough. What DO you identify as then?”
6 Yr Old: “I identify as an Acacia.”
Me: “Yes, you are an excellent Acacia – I don’t know anyone else named that and there’s no one like you!”
6 Yr Old: “Great. So when is International Acacia Day?!”
Celebrating Her Mother’s Love of Coffee
Last thing before heading to school, she ran back to her room and returned with $3 of her own money (from her piggy bank no less) and told me to treat myself to a coffee on her for International Woman’s Day! That final, little thoughtful moment kept me smiling for hours. If she keeps that up – she might just get her own international day after all!!!

What a great day spent together and chatting about IWD! I love that she has such a great perspective! She got that from her mama. <3
Aw thanks Reg! I do love seeing the world through her perspective!!
She is so darn cute and hilarious! This spunky 6 year old is ONE.OF.A.KIND!!!
Yes – one of kind for sure and we wouldn’t have any other way!! But sometimes the things she says are too good not to share.
Brightened my day immensely reading this. Way to go Acacia!!
Yes, long live International Acacia Day!
