Today I was trying to zip Romilly into her sleeping bag for her nap, and she was fighting it and sticking her leg out the side (to my knowledge, she is still awake now that it’s two hours later – what’s up with this kid?!?). I gave her a stern “No, Ma’am”, which she has taken objection to before, and did again today.
“I is a man” she insisted.
“No,” I told her. “You’re not. I’m sorry.” (How do I always let her sidetrack me like this?)
Then, with bitter tears in her eyes, “I wanna be a man!”
I think she’s in for a rude awakening when she’s discovers this is not among the many career options now available to women. And Pippa might be too, when she discovers that choo-choo train has also been left off the list.
(Brownie points for anyone who gets the movie reference in my title! Ironic, considering Trevor’s choice of movie-reference title today…)
