Raising Dragons

There are moments when I am proud to be a nanny, and listening to this spoken word poetry right now is one of them. I am so proud to be able to work with future women. To raise a little girl to know that she is more than a princess in a whale bone corset, she will know she can buy a pen a write a story. She can be a dragon, setting the world on fire where she steps and bringing awe to those around her as she glistens in the sunlight. So, I am with you Tai, give me all the girls…

I hope you were struck by these lines… they brought tears to my eyes. I hope every little girl who I am blessed to have in my life hears this message from me in some form.

“You are so much mythical magic you bust the seams off any princess dress. So my girl, enter this world on wings, screaming crimson and gold. Blazing and bright as sunrise. Break the dawn like an eggshell. You are welcome in these arms, and I hope the world is ready for you.” Tai Weinman
