Mini is a bit of a tomboy. She prefers trousers to skirts (because they're easier to climb trees in), shows no particular interest in Barbie dolls and make up (thank God), and loves to play football.
But she is still a girl.
She looks beautiful in dresses, has the best pointy toes at ballet and likes to have her hair blowdried after her bath.
It really does bug me when people watch her climbing at the park and come over just to say that their daughter wouldn't do that because, "she's just too girly".
Females are allowed to be athletic, fit and strong as well as enjoying baking and painting their toes in pretty colours.
It isn't just boys who can climb, you know.
