My dd is 5 and in kindergarten. She is an incredibly lively, friendly, loving little girl. She is also absolutely gorgeous. When she was born her head measured in the 100th percentile (I believed it too because I birthed her completely naturally ouch!! Lol). I always thought she'd just grow into it, and in a way she has, but it still measures around the 95th percentile. I thought that by the time she was old enough for kids to start noticing stuff like that she would've grown into it. I was wrong. She's been coming home from school crying every day for about 2 weeks because her classmates call her "big head" and tease her about it. She used to be so confident, but now she just talks about how ugly she is. Her daddy and I tell her constantly how beautiful she is, but she acts like she doesn't believe us. It's breaking my heart and I don't know what to tell her. Any advice?
First of all, THANK YOU so much to everyone for the incredibly sweet comments. I'm going to show them to her tomorrow. I'm sure it will brighten her spirit. Also, since most of you said her head doesn't look big I added a new pic on pg 7. She's wearing an adult sized hat that fits her perfectly. I think her head and everything else about her is absolutely beautiful, but I think it will mean a lot to her that all of you think so too :-)
