Girl Problems.

So.  I don't know if it's the influx of testosterone in our household thanks to her new brother or maybe just her age but lately my daughter has turned into a GIRL.  Not the 2 year old version where she dresses up in princess dresses and tiaras and dances around with her stuffed animals.  Although that was fun, too.  I mean a real girl.  A grown up one.  With problems that are going to plague her for the rest of her life.  It's amazing and awesome and heartbreaking to watch because I get it.  I SO get it.

I first noticed it after she went back to school shopping with my mom.  She told me:

"there were some things that I wanted.  Like really cute clothes.  But they weren't on sale.  So I'll have to wait and maybe look for them another time."


Then one day last week I found her sitting in the middle of her room.  The contents of her shoe bin were spread all around her and she was obviously very distraught.  I asked her what was wrong and she said:

"I just can't decide what shoes to wear."


The clincher was when she was getting dressed this morning.  She came to me in distress once again and said:

"Mommy, I just don't have enough pairs of black pants."

OH HONEY NEITHER DO I.  None of us do.  And we all own at least several pairs.  This is coming from a child who can rock pants with flowers and polkadots and stripes and all sorts of nonsense.  But nothing beats a good pair of black pants.  I get it.  I SO get it.   We all do.

What happens when we go out unsupervised. We also got 8 yards of fabric. And ice cream. #girlsnightout #girlmom
Girls night out.
And as an added bonus picture... my girl 4 years ago when she was only 6 months old.  Before she had all of these girl problems.
