[Girl Moms] On Wednesdays We Wear Pink... chalk dust


Hi! I am Jessica, blogger at Little Baby Garvin & mama to my "not-so-little-baby" 19 month old daughter, Harper. I had a feeling from the moment that I got a positive pregnancy test that I was going to have a girl. My husband swears that we will have all girls, which I've come to learn would be okay with me.  I love, love, love being a girl mom.
I'm not sure I can pick any single reason why I love being a girl mom, but I think it's safe to say it mostly involves outfits, accessories & girl time.






My husband used to tell me that I sometimes dressed like a little kid who's mom let them pick out their own outfit for school. Whaaat? Like my rainboots DON'T look good with my sequin top? Pshhhh. This is one of the reasons why having a little girl rocks. You can live vicariously through their outfits. Tell me you wouldn't like to have any of these get ups in your size?


The same goes for accessories. Bows, friendship bracelets, metallic shoes & ruffle backpacks are just the beginning of it. There's a good chance I'd try getting away with wearing some of Harper's killer headbands to the grocery store if people wouldn't look at me like I had two heads. Although some of them are big enough to make it appear so.



I live for the special "girl time" that we have together, especially now that she is getting a little bit older & understands things on a whole new level. This includes shopping, cooking, coloring, etc. One of my favorite times of the day is when I am showering & getting ready in the bathroom, she is my little companion. She hangs out in the bathroom, sorts through my nailpolishes, organizes headbands & hair ties in baskets & fills her little purse with all of my different chapsticks & lip glosses. It's really one of the only times of day when she isn't totally bonkers (which any mom can appreciate) but it's so sweet to see her doing things that I know she only picked up from watching me do them. She is the sweetest little sidekick.

The truth is, whether you have boys or girls, it is incredible to watch them grow & learn to love the things you love. Some of Harper's favorite things to do are drawing on the chalkboard (like mama!), throwing around the football outside (like dad!) or hanging out in her pajamas eating snacks in the hammock (I'll let you guess where she gets that). 




Thanks so much for having me, Erinn! Can't wait to see pictures of your TWO precious girls together! #girlmom #makeitadouble :)

    1. Haha too funny! Close enough, I usually get Erin (or Errin) instead of Erinn so I'm used to it :)

  10. Aw so much fun! My son usually just throws my nail polish when I'm getting ready. I'm terrified he'll break one and I'll have OPI Cajun Shrimp all over the walls and floor---oh how different boys are :0
