This little girl was playing on the beach in 50 degree weather. Jumping around in her green polka dot bikini, her parents looked on from the shoreline and just laughed. I made eye contact with the mother and she smiled, threw her arms up in the air as a ‘hey what can you do’ gesture. This is the moment I realized and decided what kind of parent I want to be.
I want girls to just be able to feel like they can do whatever the fuck they want. You can be really smart and really fun, and not be afraid to be funny. Girls forget that they have so many facets.
