Re: “Shopping Buddies

This is really, really lovely. With my 3 year old son I have had a couple of moments already when I've looked at him and suddenly had the feeling "You will always be someone I want to be around. You will be a friend." I get that we can't be friends now - he needs a parent - but I am looking forward to it when the time is right and any glimpses I get along the way.

Re: “Legos

It's hard for me to be succinct so let me say Here, Here. As the mother of a 3 year old boy and stepmom to a 15 year old boy and a 17 year old girl (who didn't necessarily go for all the pink and purple as a little one). I can tell you that what we acknowledge, admire, etc. is important. What we encourage them to do, like, and make matters. There was an important article in the NYTimes Sunday magazine yesterday about women in science - worth reading. Having both boys and girls I see discrepancies in what my sons are encouraged (nay, expected), by others, to do and my daughter. It takes vigilance as a parent. And a willingness to buck trends and be aware of our own biases as much as we can.
