What Happened to My Little Girl?

I have 6 boys and 2 daughters. Alexis, my oldest daughter is 17 and quit liking just about anything that I like when she was about 5. She had her own style and things she wanted to do. Mallory is 8 and she still likes pretty much everything that I do. She still likes to wear skirts, she likes the things that I make and she is very interested in everything that I do. For the last 2 years Mallory has been a Pop Warner Cheerleader in our little town. She loves being a cheerleader and I love watching her cheer and dress up cute! She has always done great at cheerleading!!

Mallory NOT Cheerleading
Playing Football with her brother in 2008

Where did my cute little girl go. She is having to wear a "nut cup" and wear shoulder pads. She is playing tackle football and the coaches say she is better than most of the boys. Today is their first scrimmage game and I can't go. We don't have enough room in the truck and that's our only means of transportation right now. So off Mallory, Ezie and Daddy went to the Tackle Football game. I guess I have one strong, independent, athletic little girl that I am so proud of!! Go Rensselaer RAMS!!

Go Mallory! What a great age we live in when girls can truly be and do anything! Just this morning My 10 year old daughter, said "Hey mom did you know girls can play football this year?!" Ya gotta love it!

Good for Mallory. We had a girl play on our football team in HS when she was a freshman (her brother was a senior on the team). If you like it do it! I kept asking Lucy what she wanted to do as an after-school activity this year and Karate has won out. No dancing, cheerleading or gymnastics for her - there are no boys so it's so boring (according to her).

Good luck Mallory! =] My girls are 5 and 1 1/2... I just signed my 5yo up for ballet... although, I have a feeling she will be the kid when of age, asking to play football! lol

I am sorry you missed seeing Mallory. I hope things went great and she enjoyed every minute of it.
I love you lots!

Mallory looks awesome- no matter what she chooses to do!:-) She sounds a lot like my Mandy. Mandy is not interested in "girly" things at all. She says "she can do anything that boys can do"! She's right!:-) Lori

Go MAllory!
