3 birthday parties for 5 children in 1 weekend = a lot of presents to purchase. To accomplish this feat I brought my trusty advisers with me to pick out some gifts for their buddies (not the best laid plan, but, not the focus of this post). So to the toy aisle of Target I went with Katie (3 ½ ) and Annie (5 ½ ), and here’s a little snippet from our conversations:
Me: So Katie, what do you think we should get for Eli and Brian?
Katie: Something boy-lish.
Annie: There’s no such thing as “boy-lish” Katie. ‘Cause boys can like girls’ toys and girls can like boys’ toys.
Me: OooRrr….toys are for everyone, and boys and girls should get to play with whatever they like.
Annie: Right. That’s what I meant.
