Just two years ago, my little Lennonhead wanted nothing to do with the spotlight. "Don' LOO ah me" she'd say in her most assertive baby voice, as she covered her eyes, making us dissolve into thin air.
"I'm melting away Lennon! Open your eyes!"
And she would, because she has a good heart, and she wouldn't want us to have to go through life invisible, not yet understanding how cool that would actually be.
The Lennon of This Morning, walked out onto that sunny playground, ready to be see and be seen. And her audience was having it.
"HOORAY FOR QUEEN LENNON! LONG LIVE THE QUEEN," they cheered, waving banners and throwing confetti. One kid threw up.
Know your worth, she taught me today. And then triple it.
