Yeah - this may seem obvious - but I'm really learning how much fun it is to be a girl.
I've long been convinced, that at some point during Jr. High or Sr. High they pulled the girls aside and taught them all how to be girls. Unfortunately, I had volleyball practice that day... or maybe was swimming. Either way, I missed that day and all the girly lessons that were taught.
The moment, 7 years ago, when I heard "It's a girl!!!" I realized - I'm in trouble. I don't know how to be a girl. I'm not good with make up, hair, nails or other girly girl things. Yes, I'm creative, but that was only going to get me so far. At some point my daughter was going to expect me to be able to help her put on make up and painting her face with costume make up was not likely what she would have in mind.
So I've been learning, step by step, a little more about being a girl in a more feminine way - and you know... it hasn't been so bad. I'm actually starting to like being more feminine. Don't get me wrong, I'd take being creative over being feminine any day, but it is nice to have both.
And it makes some of the tutorials a little more interesting with the sparkly nails.
