That's What Little Girls are Made Of!

Being a Mother of only boys...I'm not really clear on what little girls are made of...

Maybe everything God left out of little boys -

Like open affection.
Little girls like to hold your hands and give lots of hugs and kisses!

Boys are SO over that by about 10...although in private they will still snuggle.
You have to trick them to get a kiss out of them...for instance...
 "I'll give you a yankee dime if you go get my purse for me!"
     I'm sure some Mom thought of that one!
And you can usually get one out of them at bedtime cause they want to stay on your good side,
just in case you want to let them stay up longer!

But little girls will come up and give you a kiss, or lay their head on your arm with no provocation at all!
And when you walk with them, they actually want to hold your hand...in PUBLIC no less.

And little boys don't like anything cute, pretty, sweet, nice smelling (unless its food), flowery, pink, etc. etc.
Pretty much has to be ugly, dirty and smelly...and usually alive
In that order!

Princesses, that's what little girls love.
They're beautiful, ethereal, fair and usually wear lots of organza!
They smell lovely and hang around with flowers and birds.
     (When boys are hanging around with birds, they usually have a BB gun in their hand)
And don't forget, princesses are ALWAYS skinny and have the best lookin' AND richest guy in the neighborhood!

Another thing boys didn't get...
Any desire at all for clothes, shoes, hair, etc.
Oh, and don't forget cleanliness!
Remember the dwarves on Snow White when asked WHEN they washed their hands?
Their answer was "Recently!"
Any Mother of boys knows the correct question is...
"Have you washed your hands in the last 2 minutes...AND not picked your nose!!!"

What's with that?

Lucy, Leah and I spent 45 mins. Count them...45 MINUTES...looking at baby clothes.
It was great!
We do each other's nails, do each other's hair, pick out clothes...
If it is cute, pretty, nice smelling, flowery, pink, etc. etc...WE'RE ON IT!

What are little girls made of?
Sugar and Spice,
And Everything Nice,
That's what little girls are made of!

Yep, that pretty much sums it up
