Thank Heaven for little girls

Standard

While sitting with some other moms at my son’s baptism reception, one of them alerted me to the fact that the kids were playing with a doll–a gender specific doll. A group of little girls were giggling while watching my seven-year-old daughter make her male doll pee as she fed him a bottle of water. I screamed to my daughter, “Come here!”  As I smiled at the moms, I calmly told my daughter, “Honey, that’s not the best toy to play with right now. Let’s not glorify that.”

“Okay, mommy,” was the response.

As my daughter regrouped with her friends one of them asked, “Can we still play with the doll?” My child’s answer? “Yeah, we just can’t glorify it!”
