Yeah, we try not to reinforce the stereotypes, but it gets in their heads anyway...other adults, at school, TV. It's really hard to explain to a 6 yo too.

Just today, we talked about the Civil Rights movement and segregation and racism (MLK Day Monday so no school) and the other night I was trying to expand on the "stranger danger" and Good v. Bad Touches discussion he had at school that confused the shit out of him. I was ready to kill the world for making me have to find ways to explain shit that is complicated to a young little brain that doesn't get it. So now I want to kill the world for toy shopping.

OTOH, we had a blast spending his rather large FAO Schwartz gift card the other night from the safety of our own dining room. Sorting Hat, Death Star Planetarium projector, Animal Muppet...cool shit
