A Little Girl’s View of History

Published by darlene on

Boys and girls are different. It wasn’t until I had one of each of my own, that I realized how different they are.    The first time our son ever picked up a toy car and made the very little boy “car sound” to go with it, we both looked at each other and asked, “Did you teach him that?”    Neither of us taught him how to make the sound.  It was innate.

Well, today I was reminded of how girls also have innate abilities as well. Such as their ability to put the “dainty and the sparkle” back into our world. We were studying history.  I asked a review question about some things that were traded. My 7 yr. old raised her hand and said, “Mommy, I know.”  I said, “OK what was it?”  Snapping her fingers like she was on Jepardy she said,  “oh it was … it was guns, and ….. and ….. oh guns and gun dust!”
