Just suppose my 5-year-old daughter’s name is Sally Jane and then imagine my utter disbelief at hearing her introduce herself to another little girl at the ballfield last night when she didn’t think I was listening:
SJ: Hi. My name is Sally. What is your name?
Other girl: Emma.
SJ: Well, my name is Sally. My nickname is Jane. And if you are wondering what color my hair is? *Hair swish* It’s blonde but actually it looks more like honey.
Surprisingly, precious Emma was non-plussed by Miss Honey Hair but give it a few years and I’m scared to death that little display will be met with a YouTubed whoopin’.
If her mom and dad don’t get to her first.
And can I just ask you? Are little girls prissier than they ever used to be or am I just now noticing since I’ve been busy raising three boys?
Aw, I think that’s sweet. No, I don’t think they are prissier. Maybe she has to overcompensate due to all the male people living in the house with her.
Just a thought.
My little one is 8 weeks old, and she’s so cute now, what’s it gonna be like when she hits her teens??!! AaaaaH!!
No girls aren’t prisser, their just girls! O.K. I Just had a funny thought! You’d better watch your hair swishing! LOL! imitation is the sincerous form of flattery!!! (Boy I don’t think I know how to spell this morning, must have coffee!)
I don’t know. I had one of those moments this past weekend when my 5 year old daughter announce that he “loves Legolas.” When asked why, she says, *sigh* “because he looks nice.” *sigh*.
Good grief, I’m in trouble. She’s only 5!!!
When Amber was in kindergarten, a little girl messed with one of her friends. She pushed her down while saying “back off barbie”. It was hilarious!! Girls, as you know, are just way more dramatic! LOL
I don’t know about the boy/ girl thing because my boy isn’t here yet — but my girls are PRISSY! There is NO doubt about it!
It’s only God’s way of giving the ‘oh so deserved’ grin of humble satisfaction to the grandmother who always said “Oh—I hope you someday have a girl just like YOU!”
I love you both!!
Now’s your chance…go hide the polish, lipstick, and shaver!
I have two words for you when you are the only girl growing up in a house full of boys: DRAMA QUEEN! At least this is what my brothers have always referred to me as… wait, they still refer to me as this. And I will claim it as long as possible, I actually prayed for all nephews so that I don’t have to share my “title”!!! Yes, I’m bad!
All about the drama. Girls can create drama where no drama exists. Like introductions.
I have three boys and then there came…well you know…the “p” word. She’s all about wearing her crown. I’m all about reminding her who the real “queen” is. She also has the capacity for tears (not unlike the queen-bee). My husband asked me the other day about her crying. “If she’s cries now at 5, what is she going to be like as a teenager?”
I told him to pack his bags and get a room at the local Hampton. It’s going to be a loooonnnnnnnng season of tears before the princess gets to the queen-bee status of selective crying. God bless my the men in my life. They deserve the crown more than me and Miss “p”.
I’m the mother of three girls. I guess I’m used to prissy and think that’s just hwo little girls are and have always been. They develope a pecking order very early in life.
I have a grand-niece who is two and thinks every time you change her clothes she should have her picture made. (She has three older brothers)
My girls were not quite that bad but we were just a house full of girls (Poor daddy) so no extra attention was paid to “cute” and “pretty.” They were ALL cute and pretty so THAT didn’t make them special.
I guess God knew what he was doing… I wouldn’t have known what to do with a boy!
Just delightful… Grab that little sweety and hug her tight. I just want to squeeze her.
Um, excuse me?! Methinks the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and that you did not come home from the hospital with the wrong baby doll.
I’m just sayin’. . . .
That is hilarious. Welcome to our world! Now you know why we love Vicki’s Virtue Alert so much!
Prissier, meaner and into “sexier” far far younger. I’m shocked by the things that come out of the mouths of the second grade girls I work with.
I swear my three daughters were able to “flirt’ at birth. All the big eyes and smiles.
Wait. I thought boys and girls were just the same except for environment.
Are all those studies WRONG? What’s next? Will I not be able to believe everything I read on the Internet?
Hell in a handbasket, I tell you. That’s where we’re headed.
Oh. My. Goodness. That is just too funny….lol..Miss honey hair
Well, I can’t weigh in on how prissy girls are these days. My daughter hasn’t worn a dress in nearly 15 years. She thinks a good time is flying down a river UPSIDE DOWN in class 3 rapids in a kayak. She built a ropes/obstacle course for the camp where she works. I have a niece who thinks she is a princess and NEEDS a tiara NOW. I am sure she wants the castle and the fancy dresses to go with it. Most girls will fall somewhere in between. To my mind, seeing more girls acting like girls is a good thing.
“It’s blonde but actually it looks more like honey.”
LOL! I just love what kids come up with. :)
