A Little Girl’s View of History
Boys and girls are different. It wasn’t untilÂ I hadÂ one of eachÂ of my own, that I realized how different they are.Â Â Â The first time our son ever picked up a toy car and made the very little boy â€œcar soundâ€ to go with it, we both looked at each other and asked, â€œDid you teach him that?â€Â Â Â Neither of us taught him how to make the sound.Â ItÂ was innate.
Well, today I was reminded of how girls also have innate abilities as well.Â Such as their ability to put the â€œdainty and the sparkleâ€ back into our world.Â We were studying history.Â I askedÂ a review question about some things that were traded. My 7 yr. old raised her hand and said, â€œMommy, I know.â€Â I said, â€œOK what was it?â€Â Snapping her fingers like she was on Jepardy she said, Â â€œoh it was â€¦ it was guns, and â€¦.. and â€¦.. oh guns and gun dust!â€
