Girl Power


Deep in a conversation with O yesterday she happened to mention that "daddy is the boss."

"Oh yeah?"  I asked her.  "Why's that?"

"Because he's a man," she replied.

To which I thought "Oh hell no!"  That is not the kind of house we run around here and that is certainly not the kind of message that I want passed on to any little girl.  Honestly, I don't know how she came up with this conclusion considering that Ben and I share just about every job in this house and usually work things out in a pretty fair and even manner.

All I know, that there's going to be a whole lot more "girl power" going on around here in the near future.

  2. Heh, I wonder where she got that from? By the looks of that picture, I don't think she'd take a heck of a lot of 'bossing' from anyone, anyway!

  3. ha! that's so funny. who knows where they come up with any of the ridiculous things they say! sounds like lila, who when i told her our female neighbor wasn't home from work yet, said, "What? Girls don't go to work!" - so yeah, we might need some girl power over here, too :)

  7. I'll do my part by reminding my men that a penis does not a boss make! Girl power!

  8. She is young - what a great time to reinforce that she can be anything she wants to be including the "boss".
