What is 'Pretty'?

Approaching four, my DD is quite obsessed with Princesses and all things 'pretty'. She asks me if I can make her hair pretty, dress her in pretty clothes and asks how she can be prettier. I want her to understand that despite stereotypes (and I am guilty of trying to conform to these as well) no matter what she wears or how she looks, she is perfect in her own skin. A tough ask when all around we are bombarded with what 'ideal' is 'supposed' to be.

This layout on the Sassy Scrappers blog is about the little conversations we have had together on the topic. I've 'prettied' the title up ironically. The photo is of her first blow dry. Guilty as charged of telling her how beautiful she looked ;)

Pop over to see how I have hidden my journalling under the sparkly flap.
