We are girls
This is a phrase that Lucy like to say when she and I are doing something together. During the days now, all the brothers are at school so I told Lucy, "It's just you and me!" She latched right on to that idea and now tells me each morning, when all the men of the house have departed, "Mom, it's me and you!" And this morning, she added on, "We are girls!"
The other day, I had her "help" me in the kitchen (she stirred flour, sugar and water while I prepared dinner) and she said, "I help you, Mom! We are girls! Oh yeah!"
And she is quick to tell her brothers, "You not a girl. You a boy."
No lack of self-confidence here!
