“I’m a Girly Tomboy”

21 Jan

Just be you. That’s what I told Nia tonight when she told me she’s a “girly tomboy.” She insisted, that is what she is doing. She is a girly tomboy. Here’s her 7-year-old reasoning:

Because I like dresses but I like pants. And I like to play with my Barbies but I like peace signs.

When I asked her why she considers peace signs a tomboy thing, she said it’s because boys are usually saying things like peace out. I told her that girly girls can say that too and that she doesn’t have to call herself girly or tomboy. She just needs to be Nia. Pink peace sign and all.
