Linnea has always been a bit of a tomboy. Really capable, strong and always right in there - preferably with the boys!
She has never been much for dresses or girly things (apart from a slight handbag fetisch), and I've struggled to get to put her hair up, it used to be only for PE.
But... the last few months she has gone through quite a transformation..!
She's now all into dresses, pretty, sparkly, hairdos, accessories, glitter etc - everything girly!
I have no idea where it came from or how it started, but I do welcome it and thoroughly enjoy it! Now I get to make new hairstyles every day, she loves wearing all her pretty dresses and she accessorizes like a pro!
The other day, Matt & Misuzu gave her a very pretty dress, out of the blue (Thank You!) that they'd bought in NZ. She looked at it and exclaimed:
-"Oh, what a beautiful dress! I'll save it for Emma's party!"
And today for her little friends party, she pulled it out and put it on. She matched it with her favourite Strawberry Shortcake necklace, her favourite shiny, pink sandals, we made new kind of ponytail, her white sunnies, a pink handbag AND - her little fluffy white stuffed dog! Because:
She wanted to be like Sharpay Evans..! (Out of "High School Musical" for those of you who don't know. A character probably inspired by Paris Hilton...)
Then she posed nicely for me outside the party:
Who's that girl? Where is my little tomboy?
