Not My Boy

June 29, 2010

Do you think it is okay for a boy to play with dolls?

This is a question that has been out there for years, but I thought my girlfriend had the best approach ever. When her boys would play “house”, she would tell them what good daddy’s they would be some day.

Isn’t it funny that we want men that help around the house, and yet we don’t want our boys to pretend to be ironing or loving on a doll? Because we had no boys, my husband, Mr. Amazing, started each of my girls early with tools.

No one thought that was odd at the time, but many people find it odd now that my girls aren’t afraid to tackle “man” jobs.

So next time your boy wants to help in the kitchen…let him…your daughter-in-law will thank you some day.
