Today while running some soul-crushing errands my oldest son said something very disturbing. The conversation went like this.
"Jack, now that we're finished letting Target kill our souls (I may be ad-libbing a bit here) we need to go to the construction store."
"No, Mommy, construction stores are just for Daddies."
"No, Jack, Mommies can go to the construction store too."
With righteous indignation, "NO! They can't!"
Who replaced my mommy-loving son with a misogynist?!
"No, sweetie, girls can do anything boys can do, and that's a good thing. That means daddies can do what mommies do and mommies can do what daddies do.". Please don't ask me about where babies come from, not now, because that totally undermines what I'm going for here.
Whew! For now.
