Last night Robyn competed in a beauty pageant. I can admit, I am not a big fan of the concept and had been wondering why my smart, tom-boyish daughter would be interested. I think this is the first time, I had ever heard her ask to go dress shopping. This was the child that less than six months didn't want to wear a dress being part of a bridal party. So to say I was perplexed at this particular choice to be entered into a beauty pageant would be an understatement.
So upon arriving home last night, I asked her why? She looked at me and said, 'to say I did it once.'
The whole theme of Touristic is about trying new things and finding ones path. Her answer to me made total sense in that respect. In the last six months she has taken her first solo international trip, played soccer on a team and entered a beauty pageant among other things. She is consistently showing an ability to grow and a willingness to go out of her comfort zone in the search for new experiences. In that, I could not be more proud as a parent. She is indeed my princess - one that will grow up to be queen of her own domain.
