i’m going to be a warrior for my children’s self esteems, particularly my girls. i will go to fucking war protecting their senses of self worth. i will stand as a shield between them and society and they’ll never go a day without hearing from me how beautiful and worthy they are, how special they are, how blessed the world is by virtue of them existing. they won’t take my baby’s smiles. i don’t care who i have to knock down to make sure their heads are always high.
