Don’t Ever Stop Being You

If ever there was a message that could sum up what I would like to say to my creative, unique, beautiful, wonderful and bright daughter … it would be this:

Outfit if the day #instakid

People tell me all the time how great it is that I let her express herself through her outfits and wardrobe choices but in reality, I could not envision her any other way. I love every moment of it and I hope she always feels as comfortable with letting her true self shine as she does right now.

She is the fruit loop in my bowl of cheerios.

  • I love this. I didn’t get to express myself growing up and resented all the forced outfits. so now as a mother I know how important it is to let your child be their own person, An individual. I love my munchkins creativity and I want to nurture it by letting him express himself. So this is awesome!

  • Best thing a parent can do is encourage a child to be who they are and not try to change them. I guess it can be hard as they grow up but I think it’s a good way to help children feel good about themselves.

    P.S your daughter’s outfit is rad ;)

  • Wonderful! Great job, mama! Simply stated. What more could a parent want then for their child/children to be expressive, creative and unique? I love the fruit loop/cheerio comparison.
