Home Improvement Princess


This is Daddy's Pride & Joy. Katie insists on participating in home improvement projects with her dad. So he painted an old tool box neon pink and got her a tool belt. This kid can't read, but she knows when to use a Phillip's head screwdriver. Today she stained a table and chair set she and her dad made out of old logs.


She is truly a Renaissance Girl. She loves getting dirty and working in the garden. She likes building things with her tools. When it comes to sports, she likes to compete and out-hit most of her male teammates in tee ball this year. At the same time, she likes cheerleading and looks at "Vogue." One of her favorite games is "hairdresser" and wants to paint her nails all the time. Before school in the morning, she would get out her clothes, lay them on the floor and create new outfits, deciding which was the cutest. She truly takes joy from all life has to offer. I hope she can maintain that elan through her adulthood. If she does, I think she will be unstoppable.

She is adorable!!

My daughter, with two older brothers, also loves "boy" stuff but she is totally into her girly side, too.

Isn't it great when they have a nice mixture of both? My daughter loves to help her dad out in the garage, but she also loves the girly stuff, as well. Love the pics! Thanks for sharing. :-)

She's adorable, Rene :-) As for her Renaissance princess qualities, she sounds like my older niece who is equally happy helping her grandad haul dead trees out of the underbrush or painting her fingernails pretty colours with her stepmom!

That's one well-rounded chickie. It will serve her well in the future. I LOVE the fact she'll try anything.
