This is my daughter's "pretty princess" hair that she described in full detail before I started. What can I say, girl knows what she wants!
My daughter is beautiful. I know every mom thinks that, but she really is. I always try to emphasize to her that she is beautiful because she has a beautiful heart. She is one smart cookie, but she genuinely loves people and really is a joy to have around. I remember when she was 2 years old she got in trouble for something. It didn't bother her one bit that she was in time out and getting in trouble. What bothered her was that I told her it made my heart sad when she acted that way. When those words came out of my mouth I saw a look on her face that I had never seen before. SHE was heartbroken. She was so sad in the depths of her heart that she had made me sad... that she cried like I had never seen her cry before. I told myself not to ever say that again because I never wanted to see her feel sad in that way again.
When I watch her, she is so confident, talkative, full of life. She is always doing things for other people. Drawing them pictures, writing them letters, making them necklaces... she's naturally a giver.
I often look at her and wonder at what age girls lose that sense of confidence, freedom and joy for life.
I hope she never loses it and knows that she is a pretty princess no matter how old she is. That she is beautiful because she has a beautiful heart, That she has parents who love her and truly believe she can do anything she wants. That she always loves and gives.
Such a special girl...my pretty princess.
