The Joys of Raising a Girl

Having a daughter is fun! There are so many girly things you can do together. Here is a list of 12 things we have found that mothers of daughters can relate to whilst raising girls.

  1. One outfit a day is never enough! Yep the day requires an array of at least 3-4 outfit changes!
  2. Handbags and purses – a girl can never have too many!
  3. Girls love the colour pink. There are so many shades of pink...who knew!! Up until about the age of 8 years old pink is the favourite colour choice for most girls. Then purple seems to be a new favourite!
  4. Painting nails is something girls enjoy doing together, or on their own.
  5. Girls love to do their own make up. To begin with they may look more like something from a scary movie with eye shadow that is way too dark, blush that is ALL over their face and lipstick that, well, isn't only on their lips!
  6. You can go shopping together. Mother and Daughter shopping trips can be so much fun!
  7. Girls love having a tea party. It may start as a tea party with their dolls and teddy bears, then lead to fancy high tea outings.
  8. Having a girl means you get to watch movies such as Frozen – over and OVER again!!
  9. With girls the words pink, pretty, kind, princess, lovely, girly, beautiful are often used .We aim to empower our daughter and also use words such as: courageous, strong, compassionate, loving.
  10. A girl can never have too much sparkle. Headbands, shoes, handbags, hats…all sparkly!
  11. You can 'do' each others hair! Did you love doing this as a child? I know I did. Not only can you try various styles in your daughters hair, she can also style your hair.
  12. Girls love using their mums stuff. Make up, clothes, shoes, jewellery etc.

Do you find this is your experience of raising a girl? What would you add to this list?
