I've seen a few blog post and things on the news recently about people being concerned about their daughters playing with princess stuff and baby dolls for fear of scaring them for life and making them think all they can ever do is be a princess or a mom.
I think this is crazy, for reals.
If I have a daughter, I'm going to dress her in pink ... maybe even a tutu! I know, the horror!
And? I hope my Christmas tree is brimming with things like baby dolls and strollers, if that's what she likes.
Not because the only thing I ever want her to be is a mom, but because I'm not even going to worry about it.
I'll probably also put her in ratty old blue jeans and tell her to play outside.
I will tell her she can be whatever she wants to be whether god forbid (ha!) it's a stay-at-home mom or a car mechanic.
I'm pretty sure it will be up to me to let my daughter know she can be whatever she wants and I don't think letting her dress up as a princess or push around a baby stroller is going to make her destined to be barefoot and pregnant, only capable of thinking about what she's going to make for dinner that night.
Have you been noticing this?? What are your thoughts?
