How Does He Know?

It's interesting how Timothy seems to know what things are considered "boy" things and what things are considered "girl" things.  Alright, it's not that amazing considering that our society impresses these classifications upon kids since day 1 of life and I'm sure its reinforced over and over in daycare.  But still, it's interesting to me.  Last night at the grocery story Timothy walked past one of those Tummy Tickler juices that costs approximately $200 dollars for no reason other than the fact that they are in a fancy container.  Well he saw one with Buzz Lightyear and of course had to have it.  Not that I wanted to spend the money but since we were going to do it, I told him to pick one out for his sister too.  He came back with a pink Hello Kitty one--- see what I mean?  He knows these things!

Side note -- he also insists on using Elphie's pink sippy cups that Aunt Amanda bought for her. He tells me that they are "special" cups. So -- maybe he doesn't know these things or he's just very diverse and accepting of his feminine side.
