A balanced life...

We recently visited Freddie's again with some friends. Honor and her little friend, Paisley, had great fun in the gravel with the big truck. At this point, I had begun to think that perhaps my little girl was showing some trends towards tomboy-ness. I had wondered if she was going to be a complete and total girly-girl because of her preoccupation with scarves. Evidence at Freddie's seemed to be pointing towards a less feminine trend.
Then, the other day, we visited with another neighbor who has a little girl. Her house is full of accessories: Princess hats, boas, flowers, tutus, purses, feathery high-heels for babies, etc! Honor had a blast! she had on at least one of everything, including a kitchen apron. I couldn't get her to sit still so the pics are more than a bit blurry, but it appears that her girly-girly side has definitely not disappeared despite apparent tomboy behavior tendencies. So, it appears that perhaps she is simply headed for a more balanced life. I was a tomboy and wasn't quite comfortable with my feminine side until after college. If these pictures are any clue, I think that my baby girl is going to be way ahead of me on embracing all of herself from a much earlier point in her life.

There is girly-girl and tom-boy, and then there's GIRL. Honor is doing and will do fine. She's got a great model.

I agree with Paul. Honor will get to be whoever she wants with such great parents! What a precious girl.
