After struggling with self confidence as a kid, I’m big on building up my son’s #confidence. I used to get teased about my hair, my eye color, my skin tone, you name it. I used to get so mad when kids called me a pretty boy. But then, I flipped it and changed the narrative. Now, I’m instilling that same confidence in little David. Everybody has differences that make them unique. Instead of seeing your differences as a weakness, change the way you look at them and make them a strength. #PrettyBoySwag #Mohawk #FreshcutFriday #boydad #quarantine
