You are beautiful , you are smart, you are funny, you have beautiful long hair...just like Rapunzel.
Audrey responded, "Rapunzel cut her hair, then she like me" (referring to the movie Tangled after her hair is cut and her hair turns brown).
I quickly answered.. yes Rapunzels hair is cut and turns brown, a beautiful brown just like yours.
This made me think.
Originally I was comparing her hair to Rapunzels long blonde hair.
Why would I compare her hair to Rapunzels long hair? Audreys hair is not blonde.
Is this what I want Audrey to think is beautiful? Long, blonde hair? Why would I compare her hair to anyone at all?
I'm not quite sure, why I said this. Maybe because I know how much Audrey loves Rapunzel,
or is this what I think is beautiful?
This has been on my mind... I want Audrey to love herself just the way she is.
It's made me realize what big part I play with her self image. And how important it is for me to let her know how special she is.
Now I'm looking for a brunette Rapunzel doll with no luck so far.
This also makes me think.
