Show & Tell: Girly-girl Tomboy

September 16, 2009

in Show & Tell, Tessa

Tessa is as thrilled to climb trees and engage in swordplay as she is to put on fake fingernails and find just the right shade of lipstick for a self-choreographed dance show.

This photo may not do justice, but she’s put a gold headband on her baseball cap.

I love my zest-for-lifey daughter!

See what my classmates are showing and telling over at Mel’s Show & Tell. And show something yourself — everyone is welcome.

I love it! Very like my oldest niece, also, who has just come into her girly-girl nature, but has a tomboy soul. This is a great photo.

That is soooooo cool. And so my daughter. I think you need to make up a roller derby name for yours!

I love that she’s enjoying “both worlds” :-).
And that feminine touch to the “boy’s” cap – lovely!! (I also liked how it went with the Dora shirt :-)).

The best combination in my opinion! What better way to get chased by the boys than to keep up with them!

Inside her vast collection of purses, do you ever find toads and slingshots in addition to the makeup and hairbrushes?

Last time I saw Tessa, she asked me, “Are you a tomboy or a girly-girl?”

I answered, “both.”

It looks like she is too.

Here’s to climbing trees with painted fingernails and make-up!

I love that she embraces both extremes!! You have a very well rounded girl on your hands.
