"Because I Said So" Mother's Day Creative Project

For me, Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate motherhood but also a time to reflect on what kind of mother I want to be! That includes how I want to speak to True and rethinking popular Mom phrases like, “Because I said so.” I decided to do a creative project changing the phrase “Because I said so,” from a negative to a positive connotation because I want my daughter to always believe in herself without question, and as her mother I play an important role in that outcome.
