If you have a little girl, chances are she’s probably received a baby doll as a gift on more than one occasion. Because all little girls love dolls, right?
Now don’t get me wrong, playing with dolls is awesome and both my son and daughters have played with plenty of dolls in their day. But in the spirit of girls doing amazing things and the fact that that I may or may not have just seen Wonder Woman, I’m feeling a little pumped with girl power.
May I present you all the messy, fierce, strong, wild, and free ways girls play … that have nothing to do with dolls, thank you very much.
They “help” in the potato fields.
They kick butt at Taekwondo.
They love tractors.
They get to work fixing the lawn mower when it breaks.
They practice personal training.
They climb trees wearing superhero capes, of course.
Sometimes they fall out of trees …
They support each other.
They let it go on their bikes.
They wield a hammer.
They do a little light target shooting.
They rock football jerseys and tiaras.
They do some rock climbing.
Or hang out in a firetruck …
They play dirty.
They shovel in style.
Raising daughters in this world certainly comes with challenges, and unfortunately, there are still stereotypes our girls will have to face. But something tells me these girls are going to be just fine!
