A few weeks ago, my friend Julie wrote a guest post called “You Might Be a Home Schooler If…” for this blog.
I couldn’t write that post, because I’m not a home schooler.
I also can’t write a post about being a mom of boys, because I’m not one of those, either. But Julie can, because she is. So she did.
What I can write about is being a mom of girls. So that’s what I’ve done.
This isn’t about stereotyping or labeling or pigeonholing kids based on their gender. We’re not trying to say all boys do this or all girls do that. We’re just saying that this is what life with boys and life with girls looks like for us, respectively. And, for that matter, respectfully.
