My daughter is not conscious of her looks YET. She trusts me so much that she allows me to tie her hair even she doesn’t have a mirror to see what I am doing. I do not know if I need to dread the day when she asks me for makeup allowance. I know I would be more than happy to accompany her when shopping for girly stuff. It will be one of my joys as a mom to a girly girl. But I hope it won’t be soon!
My daughter knows that she is beautiful. I let her know that I think she is beautiful. Some people even call here “Ganda” (Beautiful). But I always, ALWAYS emphasize that physical beauty is nothing if she is mean, unkind and disrespectful. What’s inside is far more important than being pretty outside. I hope she gets the message because really, I do not tire of reminding her about it.
