Such a girl

I have turned into such a girl lately.  Who knew.  I have two brothers and pretty much grew up as a tomboy.  I had short hair.  Played ‘boys’ sports with my brothers after school.  I never did the make-up thing at school.  I never spent hours with my friends, doing nails and hair.  We didn’t lie for hours talking about boys.  We just weren’t into the ‘girly’ stuff.

Even after becoming a mom, I still didn’t become a ‘girl’.  I have boys and do boy stuff with my kids.  I never got emotional while pregnant.  Didn’t cry because of an advertisement or seeing baby clothes. 

Lately though I’m turning into such a girl.  I cry.  A lot.  I like having my hair done.  I feel uggles when my nails aren’t proper.  I have them done every two weeks.  I dress like a girl – dresses and skirts!  I actually own some now.  Sjoe.

I wonder what has turned me into a girl.  I’m a jeans and tekkies kinda girl – or used to be.  I like dressing so cute and pretty lately.  I’m just not so sure about the tears all the time. 

It’s almost as though crying has become my new past time!

  2. I had two brothers myself, had two boy children and played many boys sports growing up just like yourself. Though I love my comfy clothes I do enjoy getting my nails done and dressing up every once in awhile.

  4. I thinks it’s got to do with having so many males in your life. I’m beginning to do the same, I’m even growing my hair and it’s not irritating me. I was actually thinking the same thing the other day.

  5. Must have something to do with the fact that you getting older. But I am not sure whether that counts for the crying too. I have had lots of crying done earlier this year … just yesterday I mentioned to somebody that emotionally this has been a crap year for me. Maybe its something to do with the moon LOL!!

    Wow, so it is happening to you to. I thought I was the only one going a little crazy. I would love to wear dresses every day, but you know in the shop it is just a little impossible. Enjoy being able to wear your dresses and look so elegant. I wish it was me.

  10. Because you are so pretty as a girl and it feels good! (And yes, it even feels good to cry.)

  11. Um, why are you crying? Did you read your post on October 22? That might shed some light on it for you. 🙂 Why do I cry? Because I can!

  12. I think you have the best of both worlds. You can tap into your feminine side and be a woman, but if you need to run out and do something with your kids you aren’t going to freak out if you don’t have makeup on,your hair washed or a nice outfit on, you can roll with it and still enjoy any situation. I think it is great Mel!
