When we were raising our children it was popular to believe that boys and girls were exactly the same from the moment of birth and it was how we treated them that made them feminine or masculine. I dismissed that theory when our son, at six months of age, picked up a ball and threw it. Our daughter, 18 months older, had never thrown a ball. She would walk around with it in her arms, she would roll it to her father but it never occurred to her to throw it. That's when I knew, it's not conditioning -- it's how God meant us to be. Boys are going to throw balls, and while some girls want to throw balls, mostly we'd rather throw a party.
I apologize in advance if the following is offensive to you. Quirky Cottage Master would love some of these. Enjoy -- "Mandles"
