Gender Roles

I apologize, in advance, for my gross generalization of traditional gender roles in the following post.

Little girls who grow up with big brothers wind up knowing how to play sports.

How to be rough and tumble.

How to defend themselves.

Little boys who grow up with big sisters learn…

…how to play “pedicure.”


  1. I love this post. My son loves getting his nails painted.

  2. Cute…I did this to my godson when he was a yr old..he saw mommy & auntie libby doing it so it he wanted colours on his toes too LOL. My gf did her sons nails and well his big 12 yr old bro didn’t want to be left out either! When papa came home – wow, he had nothing to say hahahaha – fun times! 🙂

    Thanks for making me think of the good old times 🙂
