    And the smartest girl in my graduating class in Physics (double major Physics and Biology who went on to unravel the dna strand) - her nickname was Hello Kitty because all of her notes were done with Hello Kitty colored pencils and could have been sold in an art museum! Don't underestimate the power of froo froo pink girls.

    My 9yr old son was watching me and my 6 yr old daughter arrange her 25 Barbies the other night into different outfits and asked why anyone would find that entertaining. I told him it's just like his huge collection of Lego pieces - construct and deconstruct over and over again. A light went on in his head and he sat down to help us!
    As a woman (degree in physics) who was never allowed to have Barbies as a child (demeaning and dysmorphic - true but still... I hankered) I actually love hanging out with my daughter and changing their clothes and what they're doing (parties, dinner, beach).
    My daughter has my math brain and you bet I'm encouraging her to keep on that track, but I also encourage her love of fashion and desire to shop (which makes me want to gag). Pink math books would thrill her, let me tell you.
