>Matchbox cars and Hammers

>Apparently I’m doing this parenting thing all wrong. Oh well.

About a month ago Annie and I were at Walgreen’s waiting for her Rx to be filled. We walked up and down the aisles looking at nothing in particular. Annie spotted a hammer. She held on to it as we walked up and down each row banging on the front of the shopping cart. As we rounded the corner a little old lady noticed us and informed me that I was letting my baby play with a BOYS TOY!! Gasp and Horror! I smiled and nodded-probably mumbled something about her liking it. Then I went to the checkout and bought the hammer. Boys toy…whatever.


One day last week Joe and I were out and about doing some shopping. I was secretly hoping that we would run in to that same little old lady as I handed Annie her first Matchbox car.


This morning I laughed as I looked over to see my little girl sitting in her dress playing with her hammer and her Matchbox car. Together. Like a GIRL.


Oh yeah, and while I’m thinking about this whole boy/girl silliness. Annie has a pair of boy jammies too. Why? Because Meagan liked them, and thought they were cool and wanted her sister to have them. So I bought them. I guess I’m screwing up both my kids.
