I was walking through the mall with Kayla when she tuned in to the conversation taking place behind us. I wasn't paying attention so I don't know what exactly they were talking about. I did hear one lady say something like, "I thought I was dying." or "It felt like I was dying." or "I was dying." Some variation of that figure of speech.
Kayla turned around to this lady and emphatically told her, "You not dying!"
Then we were in line behind a younger lady who was sporting a short mohawk hairstyle. Kayla wasted no time in pointing this out. Literally. She pointed at her and said amusingly, (and in what of course sounded like a very loud voice) "She has a mohawk!"
She was amused by the hairstyle and was very matter-of-fact about it. The young lady turned around and smiled at Kayla and Kayla smiled back.
Hopefully she'll turn her confidence in speaking her mind in to becoming a great self-advocate!
