This Is About My Own Someday Daughter

This is about my own someday daughter

“This is about my own someday daughter when you approach me already stung stained with insecurity begging ‘Mom, will I be pretty?’ I will wipe that question from your mouth like cheap lipstick and answer, no. The word ‘pretty’ is unworthy of everything you will be, and no child of mine will be contained in five letters.

You will be pretty intelligent, pretty creative, pretty amazing buy you will never be merely, pretty.”

– Katie Makkai Denver
