We'd go to the beach and watch in amazement as the boys instinctively ran constantly in and out of the waves, laughing and throwing sand balls at each other the entire time. It always shocked me to look over at random little girls, sitting quietly in the sand a few families away. Their adorable buckets and shovels would sweetly build castles as the girls giggled and played...in one spot...with absolutely no...flying balls of sand.
Even in school, our kindergarten has an 'insect day' every year. We've been spidered and bugged out with cool and creepy things for the boys. The kids are allowed to dress up and the whole day is devoted to the most "AWESOME" and crawliest bugs you could imagine. Year after year, I watched cute lady bugs with delicate wings fly about while girls held hands and danced.
This year will be different though. We finally have a little girl and even though she's more prone to chase after her brothers throwing sand balls right with them, this year, we'll have a butterfly.
Today I found the cutest little wings and outfit for her to wear and can't wait for "insect day" to arrive. Sparkly glitter will be from head to toe as she flutters around the house for school. Tomorrow is the big 'buggy' day and I'll post a picture for sure.
Even though there's nothing quite as wonderful as having a house full of energetic boys with basketballs and frogs around, it sure is nice to get to share the love and happiness of butterfly sparkly hugs and kisses every once in awhile too. (ribbit)
