There are mornings in life where there are no words.. this is not one of those mornings. Jazzy, let daddy tell you his goals. By 5, you'll be looking people in the eye when you firmly shake their hand. By 8, you'll know how to fish, drive daddy's pick up truck and do cardio. And by 10, you'll be able to directly say to people, "Great job, I like it a lot, but let's see how we can make it better". Helluva plan right sweetheart? Buh! *she points to the ground at a bug. It was a good talk. #DaddyDaughterMoments #TeachEmYoung #PickUpTrucks #AndBuh
The Instagram picture The Rock posted earlier this week shows his strong, tattooed arm cuddling his 16-month-old daughter, Jasmine, while he gives her a life lesson on building her own strength. He’s got the road ahead all mapped out, writing “Jazzy, let daddy tell you his goals. By 5, you’ll be looking people in the eye when you firmly shake their hand. By 8, you’ll know how to fish, drive daddy’s pick up truck and do cardio. And by 10, you’ll be able to directly say to people, ‘Great job, I like it a lot, but let’s see how we can make it better.’”
Her response? “Buh! *she points to the ground at a bug. It was a good talk.” While his daughter might be busy with plans of her own, it’s inspiring to see him prioritize female empowerment, even at such a young age.
