As I wash pink blankets, and fold tiny pink sleepers - it still seems a bit surreal that our wee girl will be here in less than a week. My laundry room is awash with girly colours, which is a big change for a household that is governed by dump trucks and tractors.
Then I spot it. The wee John Deere outfit that we bought last week. And I realize that even though her world will be full of pinks and frills - she will be a farm girl at heart. She will love tractors and dirt, and her overalls. She will jump from the haystacks and know how to change a tire. She will find joy in feeding a baby lamb in the kitchen, and watching spring chicks hatch.
How do I know this? Because her mama does too. :)
