They Really Are Different

It's taking me a little while to get used to being the father of daughters, being that my two older kids are both boys. And the thing I notice most, given all of the feminist rhetoric I grew up with in the 1970's, is that my sons and daughters are different.

Here's a case in point. As soon as my eldest could snap Duplos together, he was building guns out of them. My three-year-old daughter has recently begun playing with Duplos, and just a few minutes ago she walked up to me with a vaguely gun-like construction...and proceeded to blow-dry my hair.
