Our oldest daughter, Meng Jiao (formerly referred to as AMA), is in Brownie Girl Scout Troop 127. They met today to go over the details of cookie selling and to learn about measuring. They measured each other's height, etc. Meng Jiao broke down in tears when she realized that she was the shortest member of the troop. I was there with other mom's getting the details of the cookie sale and I tried to help her realize that being short wasn't so bad. She doesn't like standing out as being different. There are only a handful of Asians in our town, so she stands out a lot. I hate to see her be sad about things she cannot change. I think she is beautiful just the way she is.
