15 Mom Of Girl Tweets That Sum Up What It's Like To Raise Daughters
There's no set of words that can accurately describe what it's like to raise daughters. It's as terrifying as it is empowering to know that you play a large role in shaping the self esteem and future of a little girl. No matter your daughter's personality, likes, dislikes, and age, there are certain things that all girl moms can relate to, and the mom of girl tweets that pretty much sum it all up.
As the mother of two little girls myself, I know as well as anyone the roller coaster of happiness, tantrums, snuggles, diva moments, and gross situations (as one of the tweets perfectly demonstrates) that are all rolled up into raising a girl. Although most girls are a far cry from "stereotypical," each one unique, there are definitely situations that moms of boys just don't have to deal with as often. The inevitable flood of tears when it comes time to brush (or touch or look at) her hair? Turning everything (and I do mean everything) into a baby that needs to be rocked? Stealing your clothes starting at age two? These are all things girl moms know all too well — and these tweets will prove it.

What goes around comes around and all that.

There's nothing like a daughter who makes you proud in school.
5. Spa Day
Or when you spend more time painting your 3-year-old's nails, cleaning up spilled polish, and dreaming about a tropical vacation than you actually do getting a pedicure.
6. Release Me, Peasant
They catch on quick, those girls.
7. Let Down Your Dreads
If you play with them long enough, Barbies start to look like characters from The Walking Dead.
8. One Month Going On Forever
When you're equally terrified as you are excited, you're probably the mom of a girl.
9. So Much Preparation
It's totally normal to feel like a pageant director on occasion.
Words I never fathomed saying came out of my Momma mouth today: "Girls, stop using your boogers as weapons against each other." #momofgirls— Kristin Bonin (@kristinbonin) May 10, 2016

I don't know if I should be flattered or worried I'm one of "those" moms.... My 13yr old keeps stealing my clothes.#momofgirls— Amanda Elmore (@AElmore31) February 11, 2016
Take at as the most sincere form of flattery.
