It's harder to write about girls than it is about boys.  Maybe because I am one and I don't even know what makes us tick.  So, I will just make some generalizations about girls.
Girls like pretty food--
But are willing to try new things, even if they were recently slimy critters--
such as snails or frogs.
Girls will encourage you to buy your first pair of Converse sneakers at the age of 52-- and they understand why you chose the more practical blue pair over the cute pink ones.
They understand the urge to wear a tutu--
and some girls will even wear one!
Degas' dancer in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC
and one of my girlies at school.
Girls like to read about girls and how to be one--
This is the latest book making the rounds with my 7th grader girls.  I've ordered one from Amazon to see what it's all about.
Girls like clothes, les fringues, and accessories--
Mrs. Obama's dress, now in the Museum of American History, in DC
Girls who have saved their allowances to buy Longchamp purses in France in the latest colors.

(Note the matching flowers)
And sometimes les fringues aren't necessary.

There are strong girls to admire--
Jeanne d'Arc, par exemple
and Mme S-C who is battling cancer in one of the extra parts that girls have.  She is amazing.
Girls give lots of hugs--
And bring you handmade chocolate truffles.
 It's good to be a girl.

I just discovered that fellow blogger Lisa at Pickles and Cheese, chose a girlie theme for her latest post, too.  Merci, Lisa!

Bon appétit, les filles!
