Boogie on women

Image : The Graphics Fairy
I am writing an essay on Feminism and motherhood/ housewifery and have been reading a lot of interesting things about the subject. This sparked me to ask Boogie what he thought of women.

Me: Boogie what do you think of women?
Boogie: They are nice. And they ride bicycles naked.
(he is referring to the Queen video clip we watched)
Me: Do I ride my bicycle naked?
Boogie: No but your a lady.
Me: Is there a difference between women and ladies?
Boogie: Yeah women ride bikes naked and ladies wear clothes.

I'm not sure what to think of this!

Today was a long day with a very grumpy boy. Every question I asked Melon his response was “nooo”. He almost got ran over by a car this morning outside school as he ran off (and boy does he run quickly!). In an effort to find the good things in this difficult day I have made a quick list of things that I am grateful happened today:
 Stories with Melon.
 Singalongs with everyone.
 Food- cooked with love.
 Sharp pencils.
 Not having to do the dishes

Small things, I know, but sometimes you have to keep your eyes firmly on whatever good things you can find, no matter the size.
