Tom Boy VS Girly Girl

My daughter likes to consider herself a tomboy. I think she is a girly girl. We have this discussion at least once a week, and we never agree.

First, she loves makeup. Actually, she is obsessed with makeup. I took her to the good ole dollar store yesterday and let her pick out 5 things. She was in pure Heaven!

Second, she is constantly playing with her hair. From teasing, to straightening to curling. For her last birthday, I got her a ton of hair clips, her own shampoo and conditioner, and hairspray. She was very happy.

Third, my girl is crazy about You Tube videos. All the how to do make up to how to do braids. Anything and everything that has to do with making yourself beautiful.

Fourth, she wants to go to Beauty School when she graduates. That says it right there, folks! What do you think?

Fifth, she loves being outside, riding her bike but she gets basketball and baseball confused. I mean, come on, one is big and the other one small right!

Now for her tomboy side. She says, and it is true, that she loves mud more then barbie dolls. Give her a puddle and she will make mud. Hand her a doll and she will look at you like you have lost your mind.

She picked out camoflauged shoes when we went shopping not too long ago. At the dollar store she seen camo hair clips and barretts. She was like, “those would totally go with my shoes”.

She used to wear dresses all the time, I guess when she was eight was the last time I seen her in one. Lately I can’t get her to even look at a dress. But she does want the style of shorts that all the young girls are wearing and the pretty little tank tops too.

I have to beg her to put on deodorant. Even telling her she stinks doesn’t seem to bother her, and taking a shower, well that is a whole other story!

So there you have it in a nutshell. It’s definitely a good balance between the two. I’m still going to call her my girly girl whether she likes it or not. And I will let her play in mud and wear camo if she likes.  And pray that one day she will put on deodorant without me telling her too.

 

Friday night humor

Posted: August 23, 2014 in humour, Uncategorized

Coming back from the store this evening with my oldest and my mom, we were having a little discussion about whatever, cause now I really don’t remember what it was.

We were almost home, when a squirrel decided to take his life and run out in front of me. I immediately yelled out “Squirrel” which instantly made me think of the movie National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, when the squirrel got loose in their house after Clark lost it and cut down the huge pine tree in their front yard. My mom goes “where” which then I thought of  Aunt Bethany that couldn’t hear a damn thing but she could here the squeaking noise of the furry intruder before anyone else could.

While this is all happening, everything went into slow motion and as I was getting closer I thought “I am actually gonna run over this poor little critter,” this long ass squirrel decided he wanted to live and he tucked his rear end and tail up underneath him that all of a sudden made him look like a ball of fur with 2 feet.

As I rolled passed him I looked in the rear view and he was out of sight. Needless to say, we laughed about it the rest of the ride home.

Live on little squirrel…live on.

Take a nap already

My little one just turned a year this July. She is a very sweet and loving little girl. The thing is, she thinks she doesn’t need naps anymore. I miss the days where she would be up for two hours then take a nap, be up for two hours, then nap. Oh those days were so peaceful. Then the hours began to get farther apart and now she can make herself go up to eight, yes, eight hours of non stop play, before she will lay down her sleepy head and I am ready to tear my hair out!

Everyday it is the same routine. We get up around 7 then she goes down for a nap around 11, back up 30 minutes later, then it is a fight to get her to lie down before 4. First it starts with “Time for a nap”, then “Come on baby, lie down”,  and we rap it up with “just go to sleep!” Most days I just give up and let her go, crying and whining, til she just can’t go any farther.

I do look forward to 8pm tho. That is the time when she has had her bath and some warm milk, takes her paci and favorite lovie, carrot, and lies down on the bed next to me and falls alseep. A little sigh of relief passes over me. I marvel in her sweetness and kiss her little head. I then tiptoe out of the room and silently pray I don’t step on the creaky board that is right in front of the bedroom door.

I know she does not understand her mommy’s pleas for her to rest. Not to mention a break to regain my sanity. But then again, maybe she does.

 

Give me a minute!

Give me a minute! That is all I seem to say around here. I get tired of hearing my self say those 4 words. Then when I don’t say them I think them! My family, whom I love very much, think that the world is gonna end if mom goes and does something else other than be at their beck and call 24/7.  All the time it is mom this and mom that. Can I just get a break?

I know that it won’t happen, but it is a wish I make everyday.  Sometimes I make excuses to go to the bathroom just to get a quick moment of peace, recoup, then it’s back out the door I go. Being a mom is a hard job, don’t let anyone fool ya.

Take today for instance. It’s Saturday, a day to just do whatever, but no…you are a mom and you can’t do whatever. You have to get up, change diapers, fix breakfast, change diapers, wait for everyone else to rise, fix more breakfast, change more diapers. The list is endless and I could go on, but I think you get the point.

When the day is over, when all little brats and big brats are in bed I set back, put my feet up and think Lord I have to do this all again tomorrow! <sob>
