There are a lot of things I wish I could tell my daughter. But, she is two years old and the only thing on her mind is Daniel Tiger and Princesses.
She’s my sweet baby, and I really don’t want her to grow up and fly far away from me the obsessive mama bear. I want her to stay my baby forever and always. She’s my first child so when I had her everything was new and different. I like to joke that she was my experiment.
If I didn’t kill her then I’d be okay. I know one day my daughter will grow up and be more and want more for her life. I know something I didn’t really seem to struggle with too much was my body image.
I truly think it was because I had a mother that never really spoke to me at least much about the things she didn’t like about her body. She always showed me how strong she was instead. I think that one simple act was more powerful for my self-esteem than my mother probably ever really knew.
So here is my advice to my future daughter and maybe someone else might say similar things to their daughters one day too.
