A Pretty Problem

I just deleted paragraphs and paragraphs and paragraphs of a post I couldn't stand to write. Or read.

It pretty much all boils down to this: I have three beautiful girls. I want them to know how beautiful they are, inside and out. But right now, I hate PRETTY. Gracie and I are in a half-year-long battle over wearing dresses outside and inside and all day and all night and in the house and out and about.

It's killing me. It's killing me to fight with her about it every day. And mostly, it's killing me that she already has to care about her looks.

So that's all I'm going to say. Instead, I'm going to post pictures of my pretty, pretty girls. Who are beautiful. In every way. EVEN IN PANTS!

All of your girls are beautiful - in every picture I have seen over the years!

Shannon said...

You make beautiful girls. No matter what they are wearing, and that includes brushing teeth in a plunging neckline. HAHA!

Sheelah said...

Is there any other way to brush your teeth?

That's actually a long shirt my mom lent me when I was pregnant. Gracie clearly rocks it though ;)

Rebecca said...

Poppy is getting so big already! She is adorable! Your girls are all just too pretty! That dress that Gracie's wearing in the bathroom is too funny! She looks like she's ready to go out and party!!!! :) So cute!

Beautiful as always! I love Gracie's hair in pigtail braids. But then again, I love it long and flowing too. I guess you just can't go wrong with beautiful hair! :-)

They are all gorgeous!! I love that they already look so much alike but still different. (Does that sound dumb?)

All of my reservations about having girls have zero to do with the girls and everything to do with society and how screwed up we can be. Although those stupid "tough guy"/"future all-star" onesies annoy me just as much.
