Chapter Three - Pinked! Chapter Five - Sparkle, Sweetie! Yet, when I finally got pregnant myself, I was terrified at the thought of having a daughter. While my friends, especially those who d already had sons, braced themselves against disappointment should the delivery room doc announce, It s a boy, I felt like the perpetual backseat driver who freezes when handed the wheel.
I was supposed to be an expert on girls behavior. I had been on NPR repeatedly.
And that was the problem: What if, after all that, I was not up to the challenge myself? What if I couldn t raise the ideal daughter? With a boy, I figured, I would be off the hook.
And truly, I thought having a son was a done deal. A few years before my daughter was born, I had read about some British guy who d discovered that two-thirds of couples in which the husband was five or more years older than the wife had a boy as their first child. My husband, Steven, is nearly a decade older than I am.
So clearly I was covered. Then I saw the incontrovertible proof on the sonogram or what they said was incontrovertible proof; to me, it looked indistinguishable from, say, a nose and I suddenly realized I had wanted a girl desperately, passionately all along.
I had just been afraid to admit it. But I still fretted over how I would raise her, what kind of role model I would be, whether I would take my own smugly written advice on the complexities surrounding girls beauty, body image, education, achievement. Would I embrace frilly dresses or ban Barbies?
Push soccer cleats or tutus? Shopping for her layette, I grumbled over the relentless color coding of babies. Who cared whether the crib sheets were pink or glen plaid? During those months, I must have started a million sentences with My daughter will never And then I became a mother.
Daisy was, of course, the most beautiful baby ever if you don t believe me, ask my husband. I was committed to raising her without a sense of 9 limits: I wanted her to believe neither that some behavior or toy or profession was not for her sex nor that it was mandatory for her sex.
I wanted her to be able to pick and choose the pieces of her identity freely that was supposed to be the prerogative, the privilege, of her generation. For a while, it looked as if I were succeeding.
On her first day of preschool, at age two, she wore her favorite outfit her engineers a pair of pinstriped overalls and proudly toted her Thomas the Tank Engine lunchbox.
Tumblr is a place to express yourself, discover yourself, and bond over the stuff you love. It's where your interests connect you with your people. PAGE 1 v If you occasionally call the refrigerator the icebox, you may share some of my memories. When we visited cousin David at our uncles home in Hackensack, the wooden icebox was on the back porch. In Disney On Ice provides Frozen, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse take the crowd through the mysterious story based in Arendelle, with special hearings by precious Disney princesses and favorite characters from Disney/Pixar's Model History and Finding Nemo and Disney's The Lion King, who come together to prove that real love is the greatest power.
I complained to anyone who would listen about the shortsightedness of the Learning Curve company, which pictured only boys on its Thomas packaging and had made Lady, its shiny mauve girl engine, smaller than the rest.
The other females among Sodor s rolling stock were passenger cars passenger cars named Annie, Clarabel, Henrietta, and, yes, Daisy.
Really, though, my bitching was a form of bragging. My daughter had transcended typecasting. Oh, how the mighty fall. All it took was one boy who, while whizzing past her on the playground, yelled, Girls don t like trains! Within a month, Daisy threw a tantrum when I tried to wrestle her into pants.
As if by osmosis she had learned the names and gown colors of every Disney Princess I didn t even know what a Disney Princess was. She gazed longingly into the tulledraped windows of the local toy stores and for her third birthday begged for a real princess dress with matching plastic high heels.
Meanwhile, one of her classmates, the one with Two Mommies, showed up to school every single day dressed in a Cinderella gown. With a bridal veil. What was going on here? My fellow mothers, women who once swore they would never be dependent on a man, smiled indulgently at daughters who warbled So This Is Love or insisted on being addressed as Snow White.
The supermarket checkout clerk invariably greeted Daisy with Hi, Princess.
