The best and most enlightening conversations are usually ones that come out of the blue and encompass a topic that was least expected.
Jack said to me the other day, completely out of the blue and discussing a topic that was least expected, "I hope when I have kids I have girls."
"Why?" I asked him.
"Because they are a lot calmer than boys."
"What makes you think that?"
"Because," he said, getting a little huffy with my obvious ignorance of girls. I am not a girl you know. I am a mom who knows nothing of girls. "All you have to do is give them a Barbie doll and they will just sit around and comb hair all day."
So, while I am very happy with his awareness of what a handful he and his brother can be at times, I feel we must work on his stereotyping and gender profiling.
