So, today Daddy was planning on mowing the lawn after dinner. The Little Man either a) doesn't have his appetite back after being sick or b) is being 2 and decided not to eat dinner. I finished my dinner as the LMs was still untouched. I was trying to show how exciting it is to be finished with dinner. Here is the conversation that ensued:
Mommy: Yay for me, I finished my dinner. Now I can go outside and mow the lawn.
LM: No, Mommy, you can't mow the lawn... mans mow the lawn.
Mommy: (after the laughter died down) What do you mean? Why can't I mow the lawn?
LM: Mans mow the lawn, you are a girl.
Mommy: Well, if I can't mow the lawn, what can I do?
LM: You can go outside and edger and then come inside and watch "Squeaker".
I had no idea that we have instilled such gender divisions in our house. Wow!
