Today a conversation popped up in which I got the distinct impression that my son had somehow gotten the idea that boys were a great deal tougher than girls. This little theory didn’t set very well with me.
So I pulled him aside and explained to him that I was getting the impression that was what he thought. And I told him if that was what he though, he was wrong. I told him that boys & girls might be tough in different ways and strong in different ways. But they are both tough and both strong.
My 6 year old daughter was eavesdropping on that conversation and walked in beside us and with a smile on her face said, “I’m a tough girl. Want me to show you? I could punch you in your face.”
Yep, that’s my girl. 🙂
