I Let My 6-Year-Old Dress Me And She Actually Slayed

"I have fashion and now I’m going to give Mommy some fashion!"

A few weeks ago my 6-year-old daughter looked at me and said, "Mommy, you need a lot of help with your fashion. I could teach you, you know."

Once I picked myself up off the floor from the shock that this tiny person I had given birth to was now judging my style choices, I decided to let her. And we filmed the whole joyous adventure.

Since the moment Delilah could speak, she's been telling me, "Mommy, you like cool and I like pretty."

My daughter, on the other hand, LOVES to be seen. She sees dressing up as a celebration of herself, and it's incredible to watch.

I'm constantly aware of the behavior I'm modeling for my child. I try to never let her see me appear dissatisfied with my body, but I know deep down that the fact that the dissatisfaction exists is probably palpable for her.
