My daughter C has a girl crush, and I totally approve.
This morning she met a woman who is a force of her own. R owns a small business, Stroller Strides, and has been such a positive inspiration to me these last months. I'm sure I have spoken of R frequently since starting SS, so I guess C must feel like she knows these fit women. It didn't occur to me what kind of impact they would have on her impressionable young mind. In the 5 hours since she met R, C has spoken of her at least 7 times. I don't think she breathed on the way home from class, there was no time for that- she couldn't say enough things about R, and what R said, and how nice R is, and how R must like children because she was so nice to her. And since we've been home, it's be the starting point of every conversation.... "Next week, at Stroller Strides, will R be there?", "R is really very pretty...", "You should give R this recipe, it's healthy....", and so on and so forth.
If C isn't going to idolize me, and let's face it- she's not, then I can't think of a better woman for my daughter to idolize. It's a girl crush, and I'm OK with that... ").
