I try and teach my daughter that she is much more then a pretty face.
That being said, when she is older she is going to be a stunner, curvy and tall with gorgeous latte skin and long wild curls.
I have no doubt that the curvaceous bombshell I see in my future will be a force to be reckoned with. My mission to give her power well beyond batting her curly lashes. To teach her that being kind, smart, curious strong, and a lover of books is what actually matters.
Yesterday I had a moment that made me feel I am showing her to love and believe in herself.
She reached to top of a rock climbing wall and was able to ring the bell for the first time.
She repelled down like a pro, glowing with pride and radiating with success.
She ran over to me still donning the harness.
"I am so proud of myself,” she said. It made my day.
It was a small success, but moments like are the building blocks. She can do anything she decides to do, that may be a singer and a dentist as she is currently planning or anything else she puts her mind to.
Ring that bell baby.
