So imagine my surprise when Paige was born; this little bundle was handed to me, and all these pink things start taking over my life. All these little frilly dresses. Floral shirts. Ballerina books. Pink, pink, and more pink.
Can I just say I hated pink? And dresses and skirts? I think I had one skirt in my wardrobe...and it was a jean skirt.
As Paige grew older and her personality started to show even more, she was Girly. How did I end up with a girly girl???
But having a daughter has been an amazing blessing in disguise. Here's some reasons on why it rocks to have a girl, especially in a house full of boys:
Even though potty training took longer with Paigey, she didn't make quite as much of a mess.
Boys are very messy. Pee goes everywhere, and you can never clean it all up. And mess = smell.
My American Girl Dolls will have a home other than being stored in my basement.
My biggest fear about becoming a mom wasn't that I'd be a horrible one, but that I'd be "cursed" with all boys. I had four American Girl dolls growing up (even though I was a tomboy), and my friends and I always had so much fun with them. I wanted a girl to share them with, and when Paige matures a little more, she will be getting them...but she has to share with Mommy :)
You get to share accessories!
Although Paige's sense of style is a bit more brightly colored than mine, we both have a bit of spunk to our style. We share hair things and bracelets. When she's older, I'm sure it'll turn into clothes and earrings when and if she gets her ears pierced.
She's brought out my girly side
I now own more skirts than I do pants, and I have almost as many dresses. And I looove wearing them. I paint my nails, do my make up, and can understand how girls think.
Someone gets just as excited as I do when I buy new things!

And I can't wait until she gets older; I have a feeling we'll have shopping trips together, cry together, watch chick flicks, and have lots of mother/daughter dates away from the guys.
What do you love most about having a daughter, or what do you look most forward to when you have a daughter?
