My daughter has never been a girly girl...it used to make me kinda sad but it's turned her into this fierce, strong, independent teenager. She always had a strong personality and did things HER way...never wanted the dolls or bows in her hair.
One of her best friends has been a girly girl since preschool and still is. Not only is she not involved in any sports (which is perfectly fine!!!) but when they are otgether, she never wants to get her hands dirty..literally....All she wants to do is paint her fingernails and straighten her hair. LOL!
I notice the last couple of years, my daughter has gravitated to her other best friend more. They are so much alike and completely into every sport and every activity school has to offer. They love anything outdoors and are so social. What I love is that they aren't "fussy"...they can put their hair in a ponytail and head on out in a minute's notice instead of fussing about themselves and running late.
It's just that I never thought she would prefer this one friend over the other. I LOVE both girls but in a way it's sad to see one strong friendship wither away that's been so good for so long.
Do you like your daughter's friends? Are they like her?
