This is Why

posted on: 2.10.2011

She's the perfect sister for boys...

Because she's not afraid to wear construction vests, safety goggles, and hard hats when driving cars.

"Yea-ah, and boo-yah" are terms we are too frequently hearing.

Because everything is a race to see who's faster. She'll have the new babes sprinting at 12mo.

Because I will be able to re-use more of her clothes for them than I thought.
Because when we go through the Mcdonald's drive through (alright, we do) she makes me tell them her Happy Meal is for a boy, so that she can get a truck toy. I'm hoping she'll be ready to part with her extensive car collection by the time they're of age to play with them. Wishful thinking?

Every night before dinner, instead of blessing the food, she blesses for the babies to be healthy & happy.

She makes up great jokes:) Like this one...
"What is a duck on a fence and by a truck?"

"A fence duck!!!"

So far at preschool, she's told me about 5 of her friends.
Jake ("who is sooooo cool"), Jacob, Sam, Hazen, and Joey.
I've yet to hear anything about any of the girls.

This little cutie knows boys.
She knows what boys like, she knows what's cool for boys to wear, she knows how to race, and tell weird jokes, and jump off furniture that's too big for her, and how to make truck noises and say things like boo-yah while raising her hands over her head.

So it doesn't matter that I'm clueless. She's not.
We're golden.


  1. i love that she tells them the happy meal is for a boy. that tate is one cool chick.

  2. This is all too familiar.. . even down to the "boy" Happy Meal. Been there. And I think it took Avie 2 days to learn the names of all the boys in her class and she might just have learned all of the girls. Two peas in a pod. I seriously think there is something to the fact that girls who ADORE their daddys also ADORE boys and everything that comes with them. So guess we'll just keep making Spiderman cakes and reading Monster Truck books.

    Love that girl.
