Round here they are strong. Determined. Independent.
At a playdate with a new friend today I was trying to encourage India, Mattea and their friend Arti to allow Arti’s little brother to come into the room and play with them.
“He can come in, but only if he will be a princess. We are princesses stuck in a tower.”
“But if he wants to” says the mama, ” maybe he could be a fireman here to put out the fire from the dragon. He could rescue the princesses.”
“WE DON’T NEED to be rescued. WE ARE GOING TO ESCAPE!”
Ah my girls, keep that. The confidence, the strength, the sheer power of you.
Hold on to it. Cherish it. You are, each of you, women to be reckoned with. It is an honor to know you.
