The Princess and The Prosthetic

Style

February 28, 2019 in Lifestyle - No Comments

We spent 45 minutes yesterday arguing about her outfit. 
I had a super cute outfit all picked out for her. 
She wanted to wear something completely different that I’m not even sure matched. 
It wasn’t til she said “Mama, I want to dress like ME,” I realized I was stifling her creativity. 
I was telling her she “had” to dress and “look” a certain way. 
I was telling her not to express herself.
I was telling her she had to be the way I wanted her to be. 
So we agreed….
Unless we are shooting pictures for a campaign, she can pick out her clothes. 
Her outfit has to be appropriate for the weather. 
It has to be clean 🤦🏼‍♀️
And other than that she can wear whatever her little creative 🧡 desires. 
Its not up to me to force her into a narrative. 
Its up to me to encourage her to be herself and be comfortable in that truth. 
Its up to me to make sure she can be creative in who she is….and not be afraid to do that. 
Its up to me to support her leopard print-sequin-butterfly combo….and love her for it.

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
