I love it when a mom lets her little girl dress herself, especially when that little girl is a girly, girl and loves tutu’s, sparkles, and bright colors. The outfits that end up on that little gal are almost always the most perfect display of her personality and all good little girl things. Have you noticed that most of them involve rain boots?Out of all my nieces and nephews (9), only 2 are girls. And only 1 of them is little. I have learned from her that even the girliest of girls need rain boots. Because when they see that puddle of water, they HAVE to jump in. There is no care of the risk that her clothes will be drenched, her hair will be ruined, or that the puddle might swallow her up. So when she chooses her outfit, and she picks her teal tutu to go with her pink rain boots – it’s like she’s preparing to take that risk. She knows it’s going to be a big day, full of adventure, and she’s ready for whatever life will toss her way. That’s how I want to be even though I’m not such a little girl anymore. Ready to take on the risk, and prepared to give myself grace if that puddle swallows me up.
