“Now and then women should do for themselves what men have already done—occasionally what men have not done—thereby establishing themselves as persons, and perhaps encouraging other women toward greater independence of thought and action. Some consideration was a contributing reason for my wanting to do what so many wanted to do.”
~ Amelia Earhart

“My family has very strong women. My mother never laughed at my dream of Africa, even though everyone else did because we didn’t have any money, because Africa was the “dark continent”, because I was a girl. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
~ Jane Goodall

  1. Matthew says:

    How about not dressing her up as anyone other than herself and celebrate and build up her child as her child?

  2. Love! Okay, so last year, I dressed my daughter up as one of my literary heroes, Huck Finn—and no one knew who the hell she was, although the costume was awesome.
