This happy rakhi image was created to express the many ways in which my kids are more than they seem to be. As the eldest of my five kids, it is my goal to make sure everyone in my family knows where they stand in the pack.
One of the many ways I try to do this is by letting them know where they stand in the pack. So not only do I let them know that I love them, I also try to let them know where I stand in the pack. I’ve found that the more I let them know where I stand, the more they start to figure it out. They don’t always understand, but they learn. Sometimes it’s a little rough, but they learn.
I think its a natural part of being a parent. The more you let your kids understand where you stand in the pack, the more it comes naturally and the more it is part of the family dynamic. It doesnt mean they are on the same page as you, however. In fact, many of them tend to think of you as “the cool kid” and not the “cool dad.
I have a hard time believing that kids who have parents who do not understand them are not on the same page as my own kids. I am also the only parent they have ever known. I don’t think it’s the same with my son who is the same age as my daughter. He gets the same treatment from me as a kid, but I don’t think I’ve ever let him know that I don’t think he is as cool as everyone else.
The same goes for my daughter. She is a bit of a tomboy. We dont have a lot of toys from her childhood and Ive never had her wear a shirt with a picture of a teddy bear on it. When she started kindergarten she was the first to wear a dress and a tie around her neck, so Ive always been a little worried that shes going to be a tomboy. She was a tomboy in her elementary school days too.
Not to mention my brother who is the most masculine person Ive ever met. When I was about 12 or so, I was talking with my brother about how it was nice to see a guy with a shirt on. He said, “What are you doing?” and I said, “I’m not taking it off.” He said, “Oh, okay. That’s okay, I was just teasing you.
I think it was that very image that my brother saw of her as a tomboy that made me feel so protective of her. That I was protecting her, or that I should be protecting her. I mean, she is the most beautiful girl in the whole world, and if anyone should have to live in fear of being a girl, it would be me.
I think the reason why I love Rakhi so much is because she doesn’t see herself as a tomboy. In her eyes, she’s a girl who loves to play basketball, sing, and dance. She’s always been such a tomboy. You never see her with a shirt on. She just wears jeans and a t-shirt. I think this is something they teach us at school, and it’s something I’ve got to learn now.
In the new trailer we see Rakhi trying to get her friend, Chaya, to take up a sport other than basketball. She wants to join team gymnastics, but Chaya’s father forbids it. So Rakhi goes to Chaya and asks if she dances. Chaya says that she doesnt dance, but that she likes to listen to music. Rakhi says that she might want to try dancing. Chaya says that she will let her know.
The next day Rakhi goes to Chaya and asks if she would dance. Chaya says no. She says that she is not allowed to dance. Rakhi says that she would like to dance. She says that she will let her know.
