This is one of NerdPie’s favorite new book series and her very girlie bow. This is how my girls and I roll. Fire and ice, concrete and lace;).
But it does seem to illustrate why I feel like such a contradiction sometimes, like today. I was watching Fame while geeking out on a nano semiconductor. This seems to explain why I have never really fit it. I tried for so long to hide my dweeby nerdy side for so long because it was becoming. Once I started accepting my separate sides is when I found my husband and a little peace. But I still struggle when I am around large groups of women sometimes because I just don’t seem normal.
Then I feel nervous for my girls. I don’t want them to feel as conflicted as I often have. I want them to take joy in all God has created them to be. I want them to feel secure in both their girlie and nerdy sides! I guess the best way that they will do that is by seeing me accept myself. It is a lot of pressure knowing you have to deal with your junk so your kids won’t have to;).
