I want to go on record as saying that little boys and little girls are completely different species. Seriously. If you don’t believe me, you must be the mother of a little girl.
I’ve nannied for little girls and I also was one once, so I know what I’m talking about. Little boys are rambunctious, wild, crazy, filthy… I could go on. If you still don’t believe me, then look at your little girl right now. What is she doing?
My three year old son is in the midst of potty training, so right now he is jumping on the sheet-less and mattress pad-less bed in his Thomas the Train undies while watching Monsters, Inc and alternately shouting, “all aboard!” and his ABCs. I’m sure you can guess why the bed is naked.
Clearly I’m used to my son’s crazy behavior, and as an educator and mom I also find it completely acceptable and age-appropriate. However, that’s not the case for everyone who comes in contact with a little boy. Judgements are made, mainly of my husband and I as parents. But we don’t care. Our son always says “please” and “thank you.” He has never been in trouble for hitting, pushing, or biting his peers. When he accidentally fell on the dog while jumping on the bed just now, he gently leaned down, hugged her, and whispered, “Sorry, Daisy.” I also forgot to mention that, on top of being a muddy little gremlin, he’s also the sweetest toddler around.
