Wordless Wednesday...No Sugar & Spice Here!

 

Little girls are so special. I know, I’m probably not supposed to say this but that’s just my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, I love my grandsons, nephews, and all of the other little boys in my life, but it’s just so much fun buying for little girls. 

 

JK and J

 

It may be because Barbie didn’t come around until I was just moving from dolls to building houses out of books and whatever else I could find.  And it isn’t just the dolls! The little girls in my life have been given doctor’s kits, books, trains, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) toys. 

 

This weekend I was at my great-nephew’s 2nd birthday party and caught this shot of my great-niece, JK (better known as mini-me) and my cousin’s daughter. Jemma is about a year younger than JK and looks up to her whenever they’re together. 

 

I love the thought that these 2 precious little girls can grow up to be whatever they choose to be...a doctor or nurse, a teacher or lawyer, astronaut, General, scientist, designer, mother, athlete...whatever and wherever their talents, ambitions, and desires take them. 



Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That's what little girls are made of. Bethany Hamilton

Kathy,

What a lovely post.  I liked your quote selection, and two of our grand nieces are in the STEM program.  The older one is learning Mandarin.  And I was lucky to have a father who believed that gender did not affect profession.  A

I only have one niece and no sisters, so I don't have much experience at all with little girls.  I enjoy little boys, as they often like to watch sports, as I do.

Interestingly enough, it has been my two youngest daughters who went on to complete college, and be more interested in math and science.  It is important to allow girls to explore their own destiny.

hi Sham Reddy CRS they can do it all and whatever they want.

Barbara Todaro we're lucky that others paved the way for us and we're continuing it.

Michael Jacobs for the most part, we don't raise our eyebrows when we hear of a female fighter pilot.

Wayne Martin it makes me excited for them. 

Lottie Kendall I'm glad that they're being exposed to all kinds of sports!

Nina Hollander we had to do some smashing even though others had done some smashing for us.

George Souto for me, they're definitely more fun to buy for. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I was also lucky in that respect. Tell your niece that I tried learning Cantonese and it was excruciating!!!

Grant Schneider it's hard for me to think of my nieces as anything but my little nieces and yet one will be 40 this year. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel when my good friend who spoke fluent married someone whose family spoke Mandarin, she said it was like learning a whole new language.

They are adorable. I'm so glad you moved closer and get to spend time with your family. I agree about shopping for girls...but I do get sick of all the pink. I wish they didn't do that to girls toys.

Hi Kathy Streib,

I have 2 boys and I remember when my daughter-in-law was pregnant, I told my husband he would be in trouble if we had a granddaughter because I would constantly be shopping for her.  Well, we had another boy but that didn't stop me!

Morning Kathy.

We had all boys, our boys had all girls except for one.  Now most of our grand-kids and great ones are boys.
