Oh op! Dd1 is the girliest as they come and the poor thing has a tomboy for a mom lol I can braid, french braid and do pig tails but thats it. I know in makeup less is more(unlike bratz-that comment made me literaly lol btw ) but thats about it-a lil shadow, mascara, maybe some powder, and lip tint is as fancy as I get lol I dont do nails...at all. Thankfully she has my mom, a good friend of mine, and nail salons. Her bday next yr (8) will be a 1st trip of many Im sure to get her toes and fingers done lol Dd2(5) likes to fancy it up a bit but nothing like her sister. I really need this baby to be a boy lol

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.

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?
