My body, my choice. I have instilled the power of their voices, their rights to their own body as much as possible. That means I take less “posed” pictures of my six year old, that I don’t tickle her so much, and that I don’t give her little bottom love pats like I used to. Why? Because she’s asked me to. It starts young-the ability to trust in yourself, to give your voice confidence, and to expect results. I want my girls to grow up kind, sweet, and loving but also to be strong, courageous, and willing to defy the norm of the world to accomplish the unknown for the greater good for themselves, the world. They learn their strength at home, and it’s here that we foster an environment that allows them to be heard, at six and four so that when they leave this nest one day, they’ll speak and expect to be heard. Girls are powerful and I am excited to see where their kind, strong hearts lead them in life.
