I love my daughter's perspective on beauty. It's such a relief, compared to mine. When I was growing up, I had to get glasses in the 3rd grade. I still remember the first day I wore them to school. Kelly Campbell called me "4-eyes". I was hurt, but didn't let him know it. I wore them, but as soon as I could get contacts... I DID!
Now that I am older/lazier, I wear my glasses more often. She looks at me as a role model. Because of this, I make a point to talk about how beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Being healthy, smart, confident and strong are just as important as beauty. About 3 months ago we started making our "Christmas Wish Lists". Allison added glasses to hers. I asked her why. She said, "Because I'm smart AND beautiful." Can't argue with that. So since then, I have visited Claire's Boutique and bought her a few pairs of glasses to play with.
You talking to me?
