Pretty Tom Boy
By: Chandamama -
Maybe having an older brother will make a girl do a lot of things, because she wants to do everything that he does!
Anna turned out to be a tomboy rather than a princess, the feminist in me was relieved…and then I thought, “uh-oh I actually make girl's dresses". Maybe it's because of her brother or maybe it's just her personality, but to her it's clear that dresses just aren’t practical, and she prefers the clothes Seb wore to the lacy, girly things I bought for her. I mean, come on, how practical or even comfortable are those dresses? Dresses are in her opinion just not feasible... give her a hoodie and some sweats any day.
But she’ll give them a pass once in a while because despite not liking to wear a dress, she knows I love seeing her in one.
However, I want her to be: girl, tomboy or just HERSELF! So ultimately, that is my message to her: Be who you want to be. Climb like a girl, throw like a girl, run like a girl and more importantly, kick ass like a girl!
