Yes yes yes! As a mother of two girls, as much as I try to focus on every other facet…society is an amplifier I can not control.
My eldest very much, from her own free will, favours the “pretty”.
Her grandmother gave her a pair of party shoes once…I called them blister inducing discomfort … she wore them anyway. First hand experience the gold… she says to me after… but Mum, why would they make something so pretty hurt people?
Beats me kiddo!
Lucky her father and I are there to make sure she gets a dose of the bare foot dirt exposure to balance it out.
Thanks for writing.
Thanks for being you.
