So I asked "What's wrong with being a girly girl?"
I thought my son's reaction was kind of funny "You're suppose to be my mom!" I just laughed and said "well I'm your mom and I LOVE being a GIRL!!"
I'm one of those women that you usually don't see in sneakers and sweats. I clean in sweats and sometimes sleep in them but never do I go out in them, other than to the mail box. If I'm cleaning at home in my sweats, and then have to go to the store, I'll change clothes and do my hair. Sometimes, depending on my mood I'll put on makeup, but not always. Although there have been times I've run to the paint store, in the middle of painting, with paint in my hair etc...but I'll still at least change out of my sweats. There are certain items I don't feel are appropriate to wear in public. But that's just me, I certainly wouldn't look down on anyone who does.
I LOVE WEARING DRESSES!
Sometimes I'll wear one "just because"! I remember one time meeting a girlfriend for lunch and I wore a skirt, she asked me why I was dressed up? It was a very casual skirt and I just felt like wearing one, besides "I'M A GIRL!"
My friend is not a girly girl. In fact I'm not sure if I've ever seen her in anything that says "girl". But I did get her to wear pink once! But I don't try to change her and she doesn't try to change me.There's no reason to. My reasons for dressing up are simply because I like to. I do wear jeans almost all the time, but I've usually got a cute top with it, not a sweatshirt and sneakers. Not that there is anything wrong with that either! I just love being a girl! I love wearing pink, jewelry, and doing my hair! I want to LOOK like a girl! And I do it by dressing MODESTLY!
While I embrace my femaleness and I express it with everything sweet, pink and well girly, I don't try to change those who express it differently. Well, unless there is a deeper issue, like trying to hide the fact that they are female because of things in the past they haven't dealt with. But that's another whole post! :-)
And I've had some physically and emotionally exhausting days and didn't feel like getting too thoughtful today!
