Good Parenting: Exhibit 1 (overheard at work today)

6-year old: Mommy, why is that man dressed like a lady?

Mother: That is a lady. She was just born with the wrong body.

6-year old: How did that happen?

Mother: Nobody really knows. But she's working to fix it, and that's what's important.

6-year old: Okay! *runs up to obviously self-conscious woman*

6-year old: Hey! Miss!

Lady: ...yes?

6-year old: You look really pretty in your skirt!

Lady: Thank you!

*Kid skips back to her mom, and literally everyone in the vicinity smiles*

I'd just like to point out that it wasn't hard to explain this to a child at all...... Next excuse please?

I am constantly misunderstood; a lot of people just don’t get me. It’s like how I’m perceived to be constantly going out with people. I’m just not. It’s like she’s a hopeless romantic so she’s a serial monogamist, always dating. They look at me and think: ‘Oh she has to be in love or she’s not happy.’ It is possible for a woman to be romantic but also to be single and to be happy. - Taylor Swift
