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
