Veronica is at the stage where she is beginning to understand the difference between boys and girls. She understands pretty well, to be clear.

I was asking her about it. “Is Veronica a boy?”

“NO! silly mommy”

“Is Veronica a girl?”


“Is daddy a boy?”

“No, he’ s bigger.”

Astute. “Is mommy a girl?”


“No? What is mommy?”

“Mommy is a princess”

Mutual princess recognition.
