We had a day at home today. We played dress up. After seeing the royal wedding - it was time to break out our family jewels and let Harper practice being a princess herself!
I loved watching her watch herself in the mirror and putting on her jewelry. So cute! As a mom of girls - I'm SO concerned with making sure they feel beautiful and smart and have a good sense of self worth but at the same time - don't want them to focus too much on their looks. It's SUCH a hard balance. Even at this age - I love to dress them up - but as my mam-ma always said "Pretty is as pretty does" and if they are acting horrible - the cuteness only goes so far. I want to help them with their inner beauty more than than their outward.
But I also want them to have confidence and not to have to seek approval from others because of how they look. Especially with boys! I'm thankful they have a dad who makes them feel loved and special. I think that is SO key. I just want to guard their hearts. Lord - give me wisdom in this!
