“Just you wait … girls are emotional.”⠀
“Just you wait … girls are dramatic.⠀
“Just you wait … girls are SO hard.”⠀
This was the script offered to me my entire pregnancy by well-meaning friends, acquaintances, and strangers at the grocery store. ⠀
I smiled and said nothing. ⠀
I wish I hadn’t said nothing. ⠀
Happy International Women’s Day, from me and the daughter I’ve prayed for all my life. Just you wait … she’s going to change the world. She’s already changing mine.
