I do think that women get the short end of stick because we have to deal with Aunt Flo, post-baby weight gain, etc., but I will say that I LOVE having a daughter for one particular reason. She has inherited her mama's obsession with shoes. Here she is wearing my platform patent leather heels (aka, "The Tranny Shoes"), doing her best impression of Beyonce from the "Single Ladies" video.
Girlfriends - the other reason it is good to be a girl. There is something special about your friends from college. They are the ones who basically watched you grow up from a teenager into young adulthood. They know all about those unwise romances, awkward fashion choices and late night college drama. This picture is from my recent weekend with my three college BFFs. We get together at least once a year and this year were lucky to be able to include the extended families. We are all in different places in our lives, veteran mommies, new moms and young professionals, but each time we get together is like we never left each other.
