5 Things Any Girl In A 'Family Of Boys' Can Relate To Way TOO Much

Being the only girl isn't so bad, after all.

Being the only girl in a family of boys is a very interesting, yet fun dynamic to grow up in. There are things you do and go through on a daily basis without even realizing it is because you are the only girl.

1. Mom likes shopping for you the best

Probably the biggest perk!! It gets so old shopping for sweatpants and new gym shoes for sons, but when a daughter wants to go shopping and browse all the cute clothes, Mom's enjoy doing it. There's a better chance you'll get random clothing items or cute décor from your mom that caught her eye while she was shopping for herself.

2. You are tougher and stronger than most of your friends

Of course, you and your brothers love eachother but fights happen within siblings no matter what. If you grew up with only brothers, fights were not only screaming matches but tended to become physical more often than not. Eventually, girls have to learn how to stand their own ground. You are your moms go to for all girly events

Whether it be a shopping trip, nail appointmentor spa day, no one wants to go alone. If you're the only girl you have no sisters to compete against to go with mom. There's nothing better than your parent asking you if you want to tag along on a pamper day!

3. You tended to play more physical sports growing up

Growing up with all boys, whenever you played with them it would always be sports they enjoyed. You never choreographed a dance with them or watched princess movies. Throughout the years, you would learn to love the sports you always played with your brothers. As you grew up, you would join basketball or soccer teams over cheer or dance because its what you know best.

4. Your Dad treated you like a son

Growing up with only brothers, you have to learn to not be too sensitive. Your dad treated you like one of the boys, because it is what he was used to. You went to more major leauge sporting events than most of your friends, because it is what most of your family loved to do, and you came to love it just as much as them.

5. You love every second of it

Everyone's childhood is unique and growing up with only boys makes it even better. You learn to laugh at your mistakes and joke around with their sense of humor.

To The Grandmothers Who Made Us The Women We Are Today

Sincerely, the loving granddaughters.

The relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter is something so uniquely special and something to be treasured forever.

Your grandma loves you like you are her own daughter and adores you no matter what. She is the first person you run to when you have a problem with your parents and she never fails to grace you with the most comforting advice.

She may be guilty of spoiling you rotten but still makes sure to stress the importance of being thankful and kind.

Your grandma has most likely lived through every obstacle that you are experiencing now as a young adult and always knows just exactly what to say.

She grew up in another generation where things were probably much harder for young women than they are today.

She is a walking example of perseverance, strength, and grace who you aim to be like someday.

Your grandma teaches you the lessons she had to learn the hard way because she does not want you to make the same mistakes she did when she was growing up.

Her hugs never fail to warm your heart, her smile never fails to make you smile, and her laugh never fails to brighten your day.

She inspires you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

You only hope that one day you can be the mother and grandmother she was to you.

A piece of girl’s heart will forever belong to her grandma that no one could ever replace.

She is the matriarch of your family and is the glue that holds you all together.

Grandmothers play such an important role in helping their granddaughters to grow into strong, intelligent, kind women.

She teaches you how to love and how to forgive.

Without the unconditional love of your grandma, you would not be the woman you are today.

To all of the grandmothers out there, thank you for being you.
