19 Apr confession

When I tidy up my kids’ toys, I stage little vignettes that defy gender stereotypes. For instance, I always have the female Little People flying the airplane. I put the daddy figure in the kitchen of the dollhouse. Sometimes I switch the books in their rooms so that B has access to the monster truck and astronaut stories and Miles can read about Ladybug Girl if he wants to. Also, one time I hid the princess gowns in B’s dress-up box at the very bottom and put the doctor and firefighter costumes on top. (It didn’t work). It’s the small things, right?
