Not So Girly After All

I hate to say it but my baby girl is not so girly all the time! She is a Funchion after all & is her daddy's prodigy! I am constantly being told my little boy is so darling, with his big blue eyes & beautiful complexion! 'So What' if I dress her in baby blue,  black & white, frogs & ducks! She hates her cute headbands & shoes! Not to mention we have a million receiving blankets that are boyish; thanks to the (soon-to-be) MIL! She was convinced Avery was a boy when she decided to splurge early on in my pregnancy! And really, I guess I had it coming when I decided to name her with a unisex name, but if you know me, I'm not such a girly girl myself. I don't know fashion, nor can I afford it! I'm a jeans & sweatshirt kinda Momma! Hopefully, one day this can change, but for now I'm fine with looking a little frumpy! My day will come when I can splurge on my wardrobe! I guess the point of this post is that I'm really okay with people mistaking my baby girl for a boy! Shes the cutest little to ever walk (or roll) this planet! Seriously, who dresses there little boy in fur hoodies, green dresses, & black leggings...

On a side note:
30 Days of Thankfulness

November 5th: I am thankful for my education. When I was younger one thing I took for granted was education. In this country, it’s compulsory for all kids to go to school, so it was a given. We never thought about how lucky we were to be educated.For my parents to push the importance of education, for teachers to dedicate there lives to educating snotty nosed brats! Then slowly as I grew up, I began to appreciate things around me more. As I saw more of the world out there, and the number of individuals uneducated, I realized all the things I'd been given are not rights, but privileges. My education is so important to me & I am thankful that I now have a college degree. 

November 6th: I am thankful for disappointment. I am not thankful that I have (or anyone for that matter) had to go through it various times of my life; but I now know the things that matter the most to me. Through disappointment, I have grown to become an independent & strong woman.

  1. I am not very girly either. Glad I have two boys. Ha ha. I am always in jeans and a sweatshirt.
