International Women's Day

"Here's to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them."

International Women's Day is a little extra special starting this year, now that we're raising a tiny woman. I'm looking forward to raising her to be a strong and confident female.

To my daughter:

In your six short months, you've already shown us how determined you are. You amaze me every day with your growth and everything you've accomplished so far. You've been a trooper since the beginning, and you constantly make me proud. I know that as you grow up, you will only amaze me even more.

As your mama, I have so much hope for your future, and I feel a special responsibility to empower you as you grow up. I remind myself daily that it's most important to lead by example, and it pushes me to better myself for your sake.

I want you to grow up with self-confidence.

I want to instill values of working hard and going after your dreams.

I want to give you the freedom to find what interests you, whether it's sports, music, dance or something else.

I want you to know that you don't have to conform to 'girly' stereotypes.

I want to help you learn how to defend yourself.

I want to be an example of how to be kind and lift others up.

As a working mother, I want to be an example of how to balance work, life and family.

Of course, I want to teach you how to respect and care for the environment.

Here's to the joy and fun of raising a girl! #WhoRunTheWorld
