I couldn’t help myself but think he looked “pretty” this day. Then it occurred to me how specified our adjectives are for girls and for boys. What’s wrong with a girl being handsome or a boy being pretty? I asked him that day if he liked to be thought of as pretty. His answer was a very emphatic yes. While I don’t necessarily like placing great importance on physical attributes, we’d all be lying if we said we never told our kids that they looked cute/pretty/handsome. So after he let me know that he LIKES being considered pretty as opposed to handsome or some other masculine term…I let him know that he looked very pretty!
Have a lovely day everyone!
