Gender Education

No.  This is mom's glove.

No. This is mom’s glove.

Blessed with warmer weather this week, I took each of our dogs for a walk, one at a time.  My little neighbor friend joined me for a portion of dog walk number one.  And here is how the conversation flowed with this four-year old sweetie as we walked the cul-de-sac.

What’s the dog’s name?


Leaning down as we are walking….she pops up and says, “She’s a girl!”

 Yes she is.

Know how I can tell she’s a girl?

Hesitating now…. no???

I looked under her and saw.

Oh.  (no way was I going to prompt this)

I looked under her neck and she has a pink heart.  So that means she is a girl.

Yes ma’am!  You are so right!  nervous giggle  WHEW

Happy Weekend Friends!

And Be nice to people.  You never know what they may be dealing with in their lives. ♥

    LOL! Love it. The illustrator for my children’s books said the only thing one needs to do when creating differentiating gender in animals or make-believe creatures is make the eyelashes on the females longer. Everything else can look identical. He was right. Even very young readers could instantly identify female from male characters.


  4. Hahaha – love that story!!
