On Being Pretty-ful



I took this picture of my daughter this morning after she yelled, "I'm pretty-ful!" I wanted to capture this moment of happiness for her.

When she announced that she was pretty-ful I have to admit, I got a little teary. I am so proud to have a daughter who has a lot of sass and confidence. While she is certainly a handful most days, it is my hope that this confidence will prevail during the really tough teenage years and continue through adulthood . I am also somewhat envious of her confidence. I can't remember a time in my life when I wasn't filled with some sort of self-doubt and loathing for some feature or aspect of myself that I possess. I would imagine I had it when I was her age.

I feel 'ya.

I love that my daughter thinks she's the bees knees, and I will continue to foster that opinion.

She IS hot stuff. If she feels it already, yoy guys are doing something right. It'll last.

She is adorable. And she will have all those pictures to remind herself of that. And a great mommy who will never let her forget.

Pretty-ful. I love that.

And she IS! Not just because she clearly comes from a good gene pool but because you're thinking about how to keep her feeling pretty-ful forever.

Very cute.

I wasn't nearly that confident at that age . . . and I'm not that confident now!
