“A daughter is one of the most beautiful gifts this world has to give.” – Laurel Athedon
Be prepared for the hormones. Be prepared for the tears. And be prepared for the drama. Oh girl, you have no idea! As a momma to 4 amazing girls, they have their moments. And let me tell you – they are anything but amazing, just like any kids. But, most of the time they are great girls and I am a lucky mom to have my 4 Little Women. However, I don’t think I realized what my mom went through with my sister and I until now. Oh my gosh. God Bless her! My sister and I are 5 years apart but now, we are the best of friends. Ask me that when I was about 10 and I would have said the total opposite. I was quite bossy in our home videos if I do say so myself. But I know, we weren’t easy. I am sure that we were everything BUT, especially during those lovely teenage years. And well, as my mom would say; pay back is hell. Now I know just what she meant and what it’s like raising girls.
I love the headbands, the pink, the bows, ruffles, Barbie’s, American Girl dolls….the list goes on. But I could do without the attitude, drama, picky eating, and well…this list goes on too! I do wish these gals could have come with a disclaimer because I would have never known all the things you go through when raising a little girl. So I thought I would give those mommas out there, expecting their little princess, just what to expect as you go on this journey to raise your daughter. Don’t worry, deep down inside, they are simply lovely and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
After the jump, read the 10 things you should know about raising a sweet (but saucy) little girl and meet my girls. They really should have a handbook on these things…..
