the role of the sexes is so simple when you're seven

last night we had friends over and their two girls were playing so nicely with our two boys. the girls suggested playing "house" which is new territory to my boys but they followed the girls' lead. after a while we heard a little grumbling coming from the other room where ari was behind a cash register. i asked him what was wrong and he said " well, we were playing house, and i was the dad, so ya know, i went to work and macy was the mom so she stayed home. well, (sigh) she just kept calling me at work saying she was bored and she wanted to work too (voice rising in frustration) so i said "FINE!" and gave her a cash register too."
