Share the Love is a new-ish weekly meme started by Books that Hook. The goal is simple – share 10 great posts from other bloggers each week. It helps increase their SEO, exposes them to more people, and is just generally a nice thing to do. So here we go! I also like it because it will give me a chance to share reviews for books that I won’t personally touch.
So here’s our 3rd round of:

That list of things I want my daughter to know is so key. I love it. Especially the “Don’t worry about your thighs,” (seriously. I love that one, because I think substantive thighs are undervalued.). But on a more serious note, being gentle is a lesson I’ve been learning lately, also spurred by my mother. We’re tough on each other, because we’re both incredibly tough on ourselves– it’s only recently that we’ve adopted a “be gentle with each other and ourselves” rule. It’s helped our relationship so much.
Yeah. I want Miss L to never doubt herself or my love for her. Even when I’ve spent a good portion of the day scolding her (she may be a good kid, but she’s seven.) I always do hugs, kisses, and cuddles at night, followed by reinforcing that I’m disappointed in her behavior at times, but never in her.
