"Mommy, Can I Have a Bra?"

That is what the youngest asked today.  And then the oldest asked if she could get one for Christmas.  I'm not sure why I was surprised.  The father just shook his head.

Our girls (4 years and 2 years) are insanely girlie.  We live in a sea of tutus, dolls, purses, and make-up.   A closet full of dress up clothes.  A trunk full of princess shoes and accessories.

They chose this.  I did not want to push pink on them.  Their nursery was yellow with jungle animals.  I bought them blocks, legos, and dolls.  As soon as they were old enough to choose on their own, them wanted pink or purple.  They wanted dresses.  They wanted tutus.  I have to force them to wear pants when it is cold.

Could these children really be mine?  In my friend Candra's blog ( ) she wonders, "how someone so pink ended up with so much blue."  I feel the opposite.  How did someone so blue end up with so much pink?

"Mommy, why don't you wear make-up?"

"Mommy, can you please wear more dresses?"

Seriously?!?  I think God gave me my pink girls so He could have a good chuckle.  Nature vs. Nurture?  In our house, Nature wins.


  1. I have 2 pink and purples and one blue, all girls! :-)

  2. aww, you gave me a shout out---ha ha I was just thrilled to read something with the first picture being lots of dress up shoes ; )


  3. Candi - Hope you don't mind. Guess I should have asked first. Next time I will ask. If I remember.

  4. Update: I showed this post to Abby. She looked at all the shoes and said, "Where are my Tinkerbell ones?"

    I had given them and several of the other pairs away a few weeks back. Oops.

  5. Well, sweetie, I was a pretty girlie girl, and look what I ended up with!
