I grew up, the only girl of three children. I have an older and younger brother. I don’t want to say I never did “girlie” things, because I did. I had my share of Barbie dolls, a white canopy bed with a pink bedspread and canopy and lots of makeup and fingernail polish. However, most of my time was spent playing baseball, football, basketball, climbing trees, fishing, etc. I wanted to do what my brothers were doing.
Now, I’m married and have two boys. I’m the only female in my home. Even the dog is male. I have, however, been blessed with five nieces.
When they come over they head right to the makeup and fingernail polish and want to give Aunt Angie a makeover. You can bet that I have every color of fingernail polish and every bit of makeup I have in my house on by the time they leave. A lot of the time, I will also be sporting a new hairstyle of random ponytails and hair clips
I love my nieces very much, and I wouldn’t trade my time with them for anything.
BUT, at the end of the day – I would rather be fishing or playing catch than painting fingernails or fixing hair. God certainly knew what he was doing when he gave me boys!
