Sugar N' Spice and Everything Nice...

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 :)

Ahhh how cute! Don't you love seeing little tidbits into their minds like this?

And you will do fine when it comes time to help her with all the girly stuff! And remember there are always people out there that know what you don't, so just find them and have them help!
