Beautiful at Burger King

This evening Mayer placed his Burger King crown on his head and proudly announced “I beautiful!” to the amusement of the entire dining room.
Yes baby boy, you are beautiful….

Have you seen BK’s newest girls toys?
Today, K was deciding which toy she wanted (boys vs. girls toys) and pointed out that the brown skinned, afro-haired doll was the most beautiful. I wanted to jump up and down with joy, but restrained myself and told her that she certainly was beautiful. I feel like we are constantly fighting the influence of media/advertising/toy companies, etc that so often tells our children that blond and blue is the prettiest/most desirable. And can I just say how happy it makes me to walk through Walmart and finally see at least a little diversity in the toy aisle? Looks like Princess Tiana is pretty popular right now. Hope it stays that way.
