On Thanksgiving morning as we were getting ready to drive up to my parent’s house I heard my daughter say the funniest thing.  Apparently, whatever my kids were playing/pretending required Jakey (4 years) to pretend to be a girl.  In frustration I heard Madeline (7 years) say to her brother, “Jakey, if you’re going to be a girl, you’re going to have to be brave!”  How true!
