Were You A Tomboy? @AliciaStreet1 #mgtab

I was. One of my earliest memories is of an apple tree I tried climbing. At the age of two. And thanks to a boost from my dad, I made it into those branches covered with spring blossoms.

My poor mom. Beds were for cushioning dive rolls, shelves for climbing to the top so I could leap off, clotheslines for hand-over-hand travel. I always craved a physical challenge and woe to the boy who suggested he could beat me at it.

As the years passed, my wild tendencies got tempered by gymnastics and dance and a variety of sports activities. And trees became a place where I could hide with a good book.

My romance novel Tomboy Bride is about what happens when a tomboy grows up.Can she change her image? And what about her relationship with her mother?

Tomboy Bride is on sale for 99ยข this week.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! ~ With a special smile for all those mothers that had to raise a tomboy child. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Yes. I think a lot of us were tomboys. I think most girls like active play, which is called “tomboy,” but which just means you like the outdoors. Now we put them into sports to meet that need, since manicured yards and parks are not that conductive to treehouses and forts built of old lumber. I was more out in the fields with my dad than in the house with my mom. As soon as the house chores were done, I was outside with the dogs and cats, cows and horses. The fields and barns were my playgrounds. I did learn to cook, and can foods, and sew, but I never appreciated doing those things until after I was married.

  2. I was a tomboy too. I think it came from being the only girl around a bunch of boys most of my life. I wanted to be out doing what they were and dresses had no place for that. Somewhere around the age of twenty I decided skirts/heels/dresses were my thing and those that know me now could never imagine how I was as a child. Guess we all go through phases in our lives. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I loved being a tomboy. Not that I ever stopped being one, I’m just an older one now. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The highlight of my fourteenth birthday was joining Army Cadets much to my mother’s dismay.
