My daughter is not who you would describe as a happy girl, and sometimes I worry about that.
But I know she is also often a loving, creative, and playful person, just not all the time, and hardly ever in front of a camera lens.
Maybe I should instead wonder why we expect our children to be "happy" all the time.
But for now, here's to the quiet, serious kids. You are equally beautiful and don't ever have to fake a smile for the camera.
