That's what little girls are made of!
Holly is a wonderfully classic little girl - she loves everything girly, pink, frilly, glittery, froofy and fluffy. I love it! I love the day we argue over mommy wanting to dress her in jeans and she is demanding a skirt & tights. I love when she must have her hair pretties in place just so. I also love it when she totes her purse around loaded with tidbits from her life & McDonalds toys. We play dress up all the time, play make up and hair and put our dollies to rest often.
So, yesterday we went through her room and organized & cleaned in detail. Everything was tucked away in it's place, pretty and very girly --- which is not hard considering most items are either pink or purple. Later that day I walk by and placed ever so neatly on the rug is the toy she played with for about 1/2 hour... her Pirate Ship! Not the girliest of toys - in fact, quiet puppy dog tail! I had to snap a photo - a pristine girls room, pink as can be, with her pirate ship out for pure enjoyment! :)
Which brings me to this... thank goodness!!! Because if you all know me - I love lots of girly aspects of life... but, I am not the girliest girl around. Poor Holly! Sure I will be able to help out with hair, makeup and even some basic clothing choices as she gets older -- and I'll do my darndest! But, if she needs information on the hottest purse choices, the best makeup or the best place to have her nails done... I am not the best resource. She is going to have the 'pirate ship' side to her in order for us to make it through together happily! I can recommend a great campsite, kayak with her all day long, get geared up for a day of outdoor play, do some crafty things together and even show her some stuff in the kitchen. Hope she'll be good with that :)
