"What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails,
And puppy-dogs tails;
That's what little boys are made of.
What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice,
And everything nice;
That's what little girls are made of."
No words have ever rang more true in this house!
It never mattered to me AT ALL - For real!
Boy or girl, anticipating the arrival of our first baby with neutral paint, white sleepers, a list of boy names and a list for girls was an experience I'll always hold dear.
"It's A BOY!" The walls almost instantly turned blue and we let the boy games begin.
There is nothing more fun for me than a clothing department filled with little mini-man clothes and I've always tried my best to be the coolest encourager of dirt, trucks, skateboards, cowboys, baseball & superheroes.

|Behold... The FROG!|
After 4 year of occupancy in 'Boy Town", we welcomed our Princess. I had a burning desire to know ahead of time with her, and was tickled pink to hear I would have a tea-party partner. I admittedly put her in one too many blue sleepers, but haved vowed to being a shopaholic of Princess Dresses - the really fancy ones - and we're off to a good start.
She is a natural girly-girl already. A hilarious, tutu wearing, chocolate loving, baby kissing, beholder of everything nice, and the Queen of our hearts. She has inherited her brother's witty sense of humor and his great big, beautiful heart.
|First Mani/Pedi with Mom|
It's impossible to list all of the things that I look forward to with my daughter... Painting each others' nails, dance classes, tea parties, shopping, giggles and sharing secrets... I am so anxiously interested to see the little lady she will become, and look forward to being her partner in crime.
|Her smile is one in a million...|
These two have completed our family like I never could have dreamed. Pink or blue never mattered to me, but as we capture this years' first critter and I give the baby girl her first "express" mani/pedi, I am reminded of the 2 healthy blessings in our life and the fun that lies ahead as we embrace the sugar, the spice and even the frogs.
