girl mom.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret.

When I found out I was pregnant, for just a second, I was terrified that I might have a little girl.

Then everyone started telling me that they thought I was going to have a boy and I was totally on board with that. I'm a bit more of a rough and tumble girl and felt like I just would know what to do with a boy whereas I'd be lost with a girl.

But there was a part of me that really, really, really wanted a little girl.

So as everyone guessed boy for me, I smiled and went along because I was afraid to say that I thought girl. Because hello, who wants to be wrong on that one!

But I knew. I just knew that I was going to have a little girl.

And duh, I did.


I cannot even imagine not being a girl mom. This girl's mom.

This tomboy's house is littered with dolls, clothes, jewelry, bows, and shoes and I love it.

There are trucks and blocks in the toy box but the dolls get way more face time. They get rocked, cuddled, patted, and put to "nigh nigh" with love.

If you leave the babe in her room alone, you're likely to find she's pulled all the clothes out of her hamper and put them all on. Or that she's in her closet trying to put on her "dues" (shoes).

My costume jewelry is a new fascination and you can find her multiple times a day standing in front of my jewelry box just putting on "balls" (bead necklaces). She rocks a necklace to day care because she loves her some accessories.

Everything about our house screams "a little girl lives here".

It's official: I'm a girl mom and it absolutely rocks.

I'm the COMPLETE opposite. I wanted a girl. Had no idea what to do with boys. Everyone thought girl because... hello, I'm kinda girlie. Now I can think of nothing else than being Mama to this little boy.

Everything you listed scares me to DEATH.
I am a little BOY mom through and through.
I am terrified to have a little girl.

So sweet! I was the same - was kind of terrified to have a little girl but now? She rocks my world.

This is too funny! I've heard that this happens, you expect a complete girly girl and get a tom boy, or vice versa. As I'm about to have a little girl in September, I can't wait to see just who she will favor and if she will prefer dolls to her older brothers blocks and trains.

I've also heard girls are easier in many ways, but I guess I will have to see once she gets here too!
