Photographer Josh Rossi planned an awesome surprise for his 5-year-old.
'I believe that African-American women are the most powerful women in the world.'
You are truly beautiful. Inside and out. Some people will say this doesn't matter, some will say it's all that matters. For me, it is important that you know I believe you to be perfect. I want you to be confident in yourself and feel certain that no matter where you go or who you face, you are enough. In every single way. 
My daughter finishes the last of her A level exams today. Her school years have come to an end. I am feeling sad, but then I have always been a sentimental mush of a mum. There is so much I want to say to her and I am making this letter public because there must be hundreds of mums around the country this week feeling similar angst.
First thing Dad, more people have turned up to your funeral than my wedding so you did well there! Rest assured that I'll make sure that in future people will always say 1,000 people came to Marcus' funeral and Robbie Williams sang 'Angels'. You know what I mean dad.
I can't afford to be politically apathetic anymore. I have a daughter, who is almost three, and I need to set an example. I need to show her that if there is something in this world that you think is unjust, the last thing you should do is "suck it up" and ignore it.
Be grateful for what you have. Yes, it's only natural to want more from life, but consider the basics. You are happy and healthy, you have a roof over your head, food on your plate and you are surrounded by love. Not everyone is quite as lucky. Find the joy in little things.
The mother-daughter dynamic between Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher was both hilarious and heart-rending. We've all had those toe-curling "Mom, noooooooo!" moments, but Debbie took it to a whole new level when it came to embarrassing her daughter.
'I didn't think it would happen this soon.'
