Are you a Girl, Mom?????

Well here is a funny story...

I, as part of my more cost effectiveness, am growing my hair out and as part of that I can now put my hair back in a small pony tail and have been utilizing the bobby pins to pin it back. I have even gone so far as to get bangs so that this looks better when I do it. This being said I have told Adam in the past that pony tail holders and other hair do dads are for "girls" but I never wore them because I have had short hair for the last 2 and 1/2 years since he was born. Well this week I pulled those old things out and put my hair up....

Adam noticed right away and said, "Mom!!! Are you a girl?" My reply, "Yes" Adam, "Those are for girls, Mom are you a girl?" Me, "Yes" He was completely shocked...

The next day I put my hair up again and yes here came Adam and the same question"Are you a girl, Mom!!!" I answered yes again, of course which started a whole conversation in which Adam asked about all the other people he might know that are "girls" to starting with Aunt Sarah and so on. So now the secret is out I am not one of the boys. Kevin has tried to help him understand by telling him all of their friends that are girls, such as Abby, Josie, Tallulah, Audrey and so on it is so cute. On the flip side Kevin announced for the the first time that he didn't want girls to come on a specific outing we went on. So it begins I suppose. We are officially entering the phase of girls just not being as cool as boys ( I hope this lasts a good long while, lol)

So funny. I remember when I first moved to LA and met Owen Chamberlain. He was about Adam's age and would go around pointing to people saying, "you're a boy, you're a girl"... and so on. It's so fascinating at that age I guess. I think I might grow my hair out too. I'll be sure to pull it back next time I see Adam.

I thought this story was so funny when you told it Saturday night to me in person. Can you imagine the realization of you being a girl to Adam? It is just so funny to me!

Oh, and Josie, every now and then, goes through a I don't like boys stage. I'm hoping this will happen when she can date. Can you believe our kids will be old enough to date? Weird.

Poor Molly will be so sad when she comes back to visit! She talks about Kevin and Adam's house all the time! Good thing Liam is still safe though!

Sometimes it is easy to forget we are girls when we are busy being moms!
