When I had my first baby boy 6 1/2 years ago, I entered a world of trucks, ninjas and superheros that was completely foreign to me. Over time, and with the addition of another energetic little guy, I got more comfortable with all the things that come with being a boy mom. I learned the name of every kind of truck, got almost as excited about construction sites as they did, and I came to accept the dirt, noise, and general chaos that filled my life. Then I had a daughter. A daughter who loves dolls, dresses, and sparkles.
I still enjoy the rough-and-tumble adventures I get to take with my boys, but also appreciate balancing things out a bit with manicures, shopping trips and quiet, gentle snuggles every once in awhile.
Yesterday, my mother, daughter and I attended a decadent American Girl breakfast at Smolak Farms. We enjoyed homemade quiche, donuts, scones, hot chocolate, cider, and treat after treat as we worked on crafts and played games. I was a little unsure if my daughter would be too young to participate in all of the festivities, but she was just enthralled by her surroundings, and loved being around the “big kids”.
(To be clear, the boys were invited to come with me to the breakfast too, but declined the invitation when they realized that they wouldn’t be allowed to drive a tractor at the farm.)
