Watch out world. There's a Mom here who celebrates differences, encourages freedom to choose, and relishes in responsible decision-making.
These kids are the face of innocence. When is it that gender stereotypes will make them ashamed and embarrassed for wearing their siblings' clothes? Guess what world? When boys play with dolls, they learn to nurture. When girls play with trucks, they learn mechanics. And when kids are just left alone to have fun -- they do what feels good. Remember that?
I'm not shaking up the world because I let my kids wear different colors, but I hope I am because I encourage them to go with their instinct. I hope compassion doesn't get lost when they head out the door. I hope they seek diversity in friendship and experience.
So shake it up. Go on. Tell me what you do.
