Oh, to have been born a man.
Most of you know that I am terrified of pre-pubescent girls, which is why it is ironic that I will be raising one myself.
I just don't like all of the drama that comes with them. And for someone that has a theater degree, that is also ironic, don't you think?
I have recently re-connected with an old friend that I went to school with from 3rd grade through graduation. When the other girls were becoming boy-crazy, we were still horse-crazy.
I just found out that she is mother to four little girls. OMG I think I would have a heart attack.
I asked her how she handles all of the drama that comes with little girls. She told me that "We go with the Anne of Green Gables philosophy: Sometimes it is better to be smart than to be pretty."
I'll have to keep that in mind--for my daughter, and for myself!
