Sometimes I forget that the Bean is a girl. From day 1, Scorch’s stuff- the dinosaurs, super heroes, truck and cars- have dominated our house. That’s just the way it goes since he’s older. Most of the time it doesn’t dawn on me to buy anything girly-girl for the Bean. The only reason this child has a tea set or Barbies is thanks to friends or family.
Most of the time, that’s just fine. Beaner wants to do what ever her big brother and his friends are doing. She doesn’t want to dance, she wants to play soccer! She’s happy to wear as much pink as you want to dress her in as long as she’s got on her sneaker so she can run. Her two BFFs at school are boys- even though I see the girls in her class trying very hard to be friends with her.
So you can imagine my surprise when the Bean came home yesterday and told me she got married to her BFF. She said it was her idea, so they two of them got married on the playground during recess. So very glad I dressed her in her nicest jeans- I’m hoping someone took a few pictures for the family album.
The Hubs is just hoping it wasn’t a true shotgun wedding.
