Girly girl.

I was so scared of having a daughter.  I was so worried that I wouldn’t know what to do with a girl.  I didn’t know how to be a girl, so how would I pass any girl knowledge onto her?

But today when I watched my daughter walk into school, with her clothes just so and her hair up in a ponytail–looking like a million bucks and more importantly, feeling like a million bucks–I was overwhelmed with a feeling of joy. 

I don’t think she has the same insecurities I had.  I think I might be okay with raising a girl.  And maybe, just maybe, she’s learning just fine on her own.

    She is really a great one. Having part of her dad in there is also a plus for her. Remember that feeling of joy. It will come in handy when she hits those “teen” years.
