When it comes to raising a daughter, there are a few certainties you will hit sometime down the road. One, you can expect to find pink glitter on pretty much everything (and oh, yeah, it's practically impossible to get rid of). Two, you will memorize the song lyrics of Justin Bieber and One Direction, whether you like it or not. And three, there's no telling where the parenting journey will take you.
