Aili loves fairy tales and princesses. I worried she was falling in to the gender stereotype of “GIRLS LOVE PINK PRINCESS JUNK”, but then I heard this one:
Robert: Let’s play ‘Rapunzel’!
Robert: Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair.
Aili: GET UP THE STAIRS.
That’s my girl.
Also, I asked her if she was going to be a princess when she grew up. She grabbed my mouth, forced my jaw open, and started fishing around in my mouth.
“No. I like teeth,” she told me, stuffing her hand halfway to my small intestine.
I think my daughter is a better feminist at three than I am as an adult. Good girl!
