Love Being a Girl making Dolls& Girls Faces

I love being a Girl!

I put up a photo of me on my facebook that I took on Christmas Eve when I was out to eat. I like to take photo's of myself as I don't always get from others how I see my self. It was so fun to wear heels and really dress up. It is not often I wear heels.

These heels are so comfortable. I think because the balls are padded.
Any one have idea's on how to buy or pick comfortable Heel??


I love to make dolls and paint girls...
I guess chimps love dolls to.

As a little girl I was a Tomboy and a girlie girl...I loved dolls and dressed my poor cats. But I wanted a train and trucks too. I was also a cowgirl with a horse...I was blessed in that way.



Girl Chimps play with "dolls" too

THE GIST
  • Some young female chimps treat sticks like dolls, handling them in a manner that evokes maternal play.
  • The study presents the first evidence of an animal species in the wild in which object play differs between males and females.
  • Scientists now think there is a biological basis behind toy choices among all primates, including humans.
