This just says it all.

I will save this and show it to Famous Baby C some day.

She says it so simply and so much better than I ever could.

This is all that I want for my daughter. I want her to know that she is so much more than her physical beauty.

I will fight everyone in the media, advertising and fashion industry to convey that message to her, tattoo it on her heart, so that she knows it.

The word pretty is unworthy of everything you will be,
and no child of mine will be contained in five letters.
You will be
pretty intelligent,
pretty creative,
pretty amazing,
but you will never be merely “pretty.”
