Boys and Girls

My mother bough all of her kids doll's and trucks when we were kids in order to teach us equal opportunity and not to be gender specific. However, in the end us girls used the trucks to drive our dolls between parties, while my brother decided to put the dolls inside the truck and crash them into walls. Even though this idea didn't really work because "boys will be boys" and "girls will be girls", I still like the idea behind it: equal opportunity to like those things if you want to. My niece Ella is a great example of this. She is young, but already has a very tough and tomboyish attitude, but she's still girly at the same time. She loves to carry around purses and is almost always wearing a tutu and cute flowers in her hair. Well ,in order to carry on my mom's tradition I decided to make her a little purse and bought her some Hot Wheels.

You are pretty much the best aunt ever. And she loves the purse and hot wheels.
