“though she be little, she is fierce”

fierce This is another quote from Midsummer Nights Dream, which is taken out of context (in the play, it’s Helena saying it disparagingly about Hermia). It is all over every little girl product you can buy, but it perfectly describes Wonder Twin Girl, or at least right now. She is insistent on getting her way, she has to practice new skills over and over again, she wants nothing more than to cross the street alone — and all this, even though she is very, very wee. If she is displeased with you, she lets out this piercing, high-pitched eaglet cry that never ends and rattles your equilibrium. In truth, hanging out with her can be a bit of a pain in the bum sometimes, because she behaves like she’s an eccentric blue-haired old lady billionaire and i’m the hired help, but I still like her. I hope her headstrong ways, her fierce stubbornness will serve her later. You need it in this world, especially las chicas!

  1. Fierce girls are awesome! Go Wonder Twin Girl! (But take it a little easy on your mama.) And as they get older, they’re less susceptible to peer pressure because they want to go their own way. That’s my theory, anyway.

  2. i totally agree! independent spirits and thinkers are welcome here! they’re just a Pain in the butt if you have to teach/train them, but she’s going to need a back bone out there
