Well...more like several 100 selfies, but these ones stuck out to me. I loved how each one was different, and not just a million of her making the exact same face (which is what I normally find.) It was like I was glimpsing into her little personality, but also catching a peek at the future.
My girls are still little, and they share every thought that comes into their minds with me. For whatever reason, looking at these pictures made me think about how that won't always be the case.
Someday, sassy Miss London the threenager is going to be sassy Miss London the teenager. That seems so far away!! But it is inevitable, and these little selfies with her serious face made me realize that she probably already has some serious thoughts inside her. And I hope that I am teaching her to be strong, and brave, and kind, and good, because someday, the day will come when she realizes I am a dorky mom and she would rather tell her BFF about her life than me. When that day comes, I hope she is ready to make the right choices even against all the pressures in this world.
I hope I am doing you justice, little one. And sorry that some silly selfies made me so sappy. ;)
How do you think we can prepare young girls (and young boys!) to be strong adults?
P.S. Sorry for all the sappy mom posts lately! I blame the pregnancy hormones.
