8 Reasons I Love Having a Little Girl

From the time I was a little girl playing house, I dreamt of one day having a daughter of my own. The funny thing is that when I was pregnant, I was completely certain I was having a boy and got super excited about that. When I finally found out we were having a girl, I honestly had a moment where I felt a little disappointed, but then my lifelong dream of having a daughter came rushing back, and I’ve been thrilled with my little lady ever since. Here are just a few reasons why I love having a little girl…

    I’ve known plenty of boys who’ve sported nail polish in their day, so this one isn’t necessarily specific to girls, but I sure do love painting her little toes.
