If I can teach my daughter one thing
My daughter played a few days ago with a New Year's tiara: She put it on herself, on me, on her dolls and, finally, on our dog. Kid have this amazing ability to try new things. A drum can become a house for a doll, a doll house a drum. While I stay within the lines of her coloring books, she couldn't care less about the lines and colors the way she wants to.
As parents we need to find the right balance between being a parent/educator and letting creativity take its course. It's a constant battle but creativity should always win.
Creativity doesn't know limits. Creativity demands experimentation. Creativity demands courage.
Courage to let go of limitations society put on you. Courage to challenge yourself and the rest of the world. Courage to change the world.
I expect nothing less from her.
