It’s Not All Mary Poppins

This wouldn’t be phallic, nuh-uh

“I built a tower!
It is TALL
and
POWERFUL
and
STRONG
and
BIG!
Do you want a
TALL
and
POWERFUL
and
STRONG
and
BIG
tower,
Anna?
I will help you build one
with your blocks.”

“No, thank you, Timmy. I want mine to be lovely.”

Soooo…

Did we just sum up
Gender Differences
in one
ten-second conversation
between two
three-year-olds?

    I love the way she says, “I want mine to be LOVELY.”

    How adorable.

    I loved her choice of that word. In fact, hearing her say that one word is what made me decide to blog it.

    She is adorable, from top to toe, inside and out.

  3. Oh, that is hilarious! Out of the mouths of babes…

    Isn’t it great? They have no idea how profound they are, which is why, of course, it’s so entertaining.

  5. That’s such a perfect example of gender differences. I’m a firm believer in gender differences after observing my own kids.

    I started out as a parent with the assumption that it was all socialized into a child from the outside, (and I still believe there’s an awful lot of that going on) but parenting has taught me that gender differences surely don’t all originate from the outside. A goodly chunk of them are entirely and inescapably innate.

  7. Speaking of gender differences, you might think this conversation I had with my four-year-old is amusing:

    Lovely is a good word, isn’t it?
