Watching three girls go from womb to now, I have had the privilege of learning/realizing that yes indeed, some things do just come to us girls naturally. It's like a code of honor that Mother Nature plants in
their heads while they're being created. Here are a few that I find
worthy of comment...


You must never, ever go to the bathroom alone. What happened in the bathroom, so long ago that we now must never go alone? If you have to go and there's
another female around, you're going together. My girls do that, as well.
I almost fell out of my chair the first time my oldest turned to her
friend (they were 5 at the time) and demanded she go with her to the
bathroom. The Rooster looked at me in HORROR! "It's true! It IS born in
you to do that!"




The phone is your best friend. I can't peg the official age that this started but holy crap. What is it about a 6/7 year old, a school roster

and the phone? It's like dialing for dollars and the dollars are play
dates. They just don't get the concept that really, everyone does NOT
sit by the phone waiting for YOU to call. These girls will call, get

voice mail, leave a message and if I'm lucky, ask me in 10 minutes if
they can call back because they just know that So&So just got back

home and they are going ot call anyhow. If I'm NOT lucky, I invariably
will be informed one day that the 7 year old called 4 times within 20

minutes demanding a call back.


Two is company, three is a crowd. This one is pretty simple.. being the mom to three girls, I don't have a lot to compare it to (as far as play dates
with boys), but I know for certain that 3 friends don't make for a fun
play date. 2? perfect. Even 4 to some extent. But odd numbers?
Fuhgetaboutit. I've even been known to comment that yes, in fact, I DO
wish we'd have a 4th kid just for that very reason. Of course, it's easy
to say that when we've surgically been guaranteed that won't happen.


A closet full of clothes does NOT mean you have anything to wear. Don't think that I have to go into this with great detail but suffice it to say that
I can buy out Justice, Aerie and TCP and STILL they won't have anything
that resembles an outfit worthy of eating at McDonald's much less a more
"formal" setting such as photos.

I know there will be plenty of other "girls only" idiosyncrasies that I have missed but these are the ones that fell out of my head today. What about the Mom's of boys? What are their little things that are
just innate?

Thanks for stopping by!

Later-

Kristen
