I read an article recently about things only moms of boys would understand. I have 2 sons and no daughters. Some things made me laugh. Others made me a little confused. I often hear mothers who have at least a boy and a girl talk about how different they are – in the stereotypical way – boys are rowdy and rambunctious and girls are more calm and apt to sit still. And yes, these stereotypes exist for a reason and there are lots and lots of boys and girls who fit neatly into their stereotypical blue and pink boxes.
But there are plenty who don’t.
