Comments: Motherly, But Still a Tomboy

Heh. I've got three little girls, ages 6, 4 and 2, so this is one of the standard criteria of Daddy Watch.

My four year old is the most "girly" of the lot - she hates to wear anything but dresses, for example. But one of her favorite games is to hurl her snugglebear at the ceiling over and over - laughing like a loon the whole time - and then to comfort it afterwards.

Either she's comfortably poised astride that line between tomboy and girly-girl or else she's completely psychotic. Go figure.

With five (3 girls, 2 boys)I've quite a lot of different patterns in the children. I've had my caretakers and my cringe and wonder types. The odd thing is, in my family the most active, energetic,rought and tumble one, is one of the girls and the most quiet, gentle one is one of the girls.
