Of Boys & Girls


Earlier today, Bean was playing with her beloved doll- pushing her around in a stroller, giving her a bottle and cuddling her like she was a real baby.

When she got tired of playing that, Scorch quickly commandeered the  stroller, slung Bean’s play purse over his shoulder, and started to walk around the kitchen.

“How sweet!” I thought. Scorch is all boy so to see him playing peacefully with very pink, very girly toys was a welcome change.

“Mom, wanna play a game with me?”

I nod.

“Ok- I’m going to be the dad walking my baby down the street. You’re going to be the bad guy coming to steal my purse. Then I’m going to chase you down the street, tackle you and put you in jail, k?”

Anyone who tells you there is no difference between boys and girls lies.
