Growing up, I remember my mom and dad used to dress me in frilly dresses, curl my hair, and they had me participate in after school activities such as dance, tennis, pottery making, and piano. The list goes on and on and I was EXTREMELY blessed but everything was just so … girly! I loved soccer, playing in the woods and getting dirty, swimming, and … and … and … most of my good friends were boys!
As I grew and was able to pick out my own “style” things changed drastically. I admit that I didn’t tend to dress like the other girls (all black and/or baggy is still cute, right?), I never wore makeup, and my idea of styling my hair was a ponytail. It would be fair to say I was kind of a tomboy. Without embarrassing myself even further, suffice to say, there are a number of “girly skills” that I did not pick up over the years. Admittedly, to this very day, now that I am an adult and all, this lack of skill set still haunts me. As a side note, my hair is in a ponytail as I type this and I’m wearing pajama pants and a baggy t-shirt. Old habits die hard, people!
Fast forward a few years, okay, more than a few, when we found out that we were pregnant. I wanted a little boy so badly that all I could see what blue. You see, I am one of three girls and when my older sister got pregnant, she too had a little girl. We desperately needed testosterone in our lives and I was the one that was going to break the cycle! My desire to have a little boy only increased when my sisters and mom started poking fun at me about having a little girl. They giggled and bantered back and forth about me doing hair, matching cute outfits, painting nails, doing makeup, and having a house full of PINK. I didn’t even like pink as a little girl, I certainly did not like it as a full grown adult. Makeup, hair, fingernails … oh my wow! My need to have a little boy only increased.
If you haven’t figured out the “punchline,” I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl. She is 5 now and loves everything princess and pink. She loves dresses, “super cute” (her words) outfits, her hair done, a touch of eye shadow on special occasions, and she loves to have her fingernails painted. I’m currently in “Girly Training” and have no doubt that I will pass with flying colors but until then, I have found a few products to help ease the transition.
