Re: Oh crud, my poor daughter

to be fair, she's probably going to ask her friends instead of her mom :P

but really, you will grow into it. I am a major tomboy who likes to look cute. but I feel horrible for my daughter because it's easy for me to scrunch mousse into my hair, but her hair? you can tell her momma is clueless.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I was, am, and always will be a tomboy. DD, on the other hand, is all girl!! Luckily, most of my friends and my mom are into that stuff and keep her loaded with all things girly :-)

We just had some friend over to play today. Her two girl were wearing matching outfits, including matching bows in their hair and matching shoes. My girls get to pick out their own clothes and have nothing matching at all. But they are happy and love dressing themselves. I say who cared how they are dressed as long as they are covered. When she is old enough if she is interested in more girly things. Maybe by then she will have a friend who's mom enjoys those things and can teach your daughter with hers.

I was not a super girly girl but I did wear make up and wore some girly clothes, sorta half and half.
However I *never* asked my mom for advice on any of that stuff.
I just figured it out on my own and with my friends.

I mean come on this is the youtube generation!
She can "just google it."


However I admit I love dressing my baby up girly clothes.
I just got her gymbo stuff in the mail and my goodness is it adorable!!
Im going to dress her like I wanna while shell still let me.

I'm the complete opposite, SO girly DD already has tons of bows and dresses waiting for her arrival! My sister has decided it is her job as auntie to help tomboy up my DD if terra Lynn decides she wants to be sporty and tomboyish I'll have to call my sister for help I do have the girlie part covered though

My mom couldn't do hair or makeup, so when I wanted help I'd go to friends. No one wants their makeup to look like their mothers's anyways. I wouldn't worry.

My poor DH. Them dressing like their friends or like celebrities is one of my biggest fears! Hopefully we raise them right and it never comes to that.
I thought the comment was funny, accurate and my worst nightmare. How much worse do you think those dolls will be by the time my Bean is old enough to not be allowed to play w/ them?

I would have no idea what to do with a girl. Apparently my momma didn't either. We never did the make up hair thing together. I wore pants a shorts more often than dresses and skirts.
I would defiantly have to you tube the girlie hair styles for a little girl

I only know how to put makeup on in theory, it never really looks that good when I do it. Hopefully she'll be a tomboy. Having a girl is already proving more challenging than I thought. She's gotta be the only girl in my friends group wearing plain t-shirts and jeans.
Theres hope! Not for you but for her lol. I am not good at girly. Which sux for my FOUR girls (no boys) :O.

Dd3 is the girliest, refusing to wear anything but skirts/dresses (shes almost 5). Obviously, they are born with these tendencies because she sure didn't learn it from me!

I have family and some teenagers (ktmelody's) to help me out when I need a girly liaison . So far, so good - they are 9.5, almost 7, almost 5, and 4m. Still alive, in good health, and fairly well adjusted (most of them lol). We shall see what the teen years hold for us...I can only hope that my general malaise towards 'typical teen girl' behaviors and traits rubs off on them.
