...is what girls with stickers will do to your fingernails.
Today was my first day as an Assistant Coach for Girls on the Run.
I'll admit, before I left the house today I was pretty terrified. I haven't spent a lot of time around kids
and when I am around them, I feel like I'm just not a natural "kid person".
I'm not so great at talking to them and I think I generally end up acting preeeetty awkward.
So, I was kind of afraid they'd think I was a big weirdo. But I forgot how much elementary age girls LOVE older girls. They think you're cool regardless of how big of a dork you're being. I also forgot how smart and compassionate kids can be; it was pretty awesome to see
them relate to and empathize with each others' insecurities.
And they're better at math than I am. They started talking about
long division and things quickly became too intense for me.
In all, it was a very fun first day.
I think I'm going to be really glad I stepped a little bit
out of my comfort zone to volunteer for this program.
