I first want to say when I was a kid my mom never let me express myself, and I don't want to do that to my daughter...
(When I was getting my daughter dressed this morning. She told me Her Bff at school made a comment that her Cars sneakers were for boys. When she told me she had the saddest little look on her face. Back when we went shoe shopping she wanted the light up Cars shoes.
That was fine with us we want her to express herself and be happy. I mean she prefers dragons to Barbie's and race cars to dolls. Since they were black I picked up a white and pink pair also. Fast forward to today. I told her that they were great shoes (daddy agreed) and anyone can wear them. I asked her if she wanted to wear her pink Tinny's. She said yes... I was about to put them on, and she said. I want to wear the Cars Sneakers. She made me so happy. A little lady that stands up for what she wants.)
Can you ladies please give me some advice. On how to help her navigate a world that tells her she she be one way and not another?
