This girl loves playing with her trucks!
Quite a few people have made comments on Ali’s toys when they first come over, they wonder where the princess shit is and always tell me that little girls really need dollies to play with.
She has one, and doesn’t care for it at all. She also doesn’t care for stuffed animals, or tea party sets, or barbies. Maybe someday she will, but for now she wants to push her trucks and build with blocks and crawl through her play tunnel, and it’s annoying? insulting? that someone thinks they know my kid’s interests better than I do.
I don’t normally get too worked up over this kind of stuff, but I guess one too many people have referred to Ali as a tomboy this week. Can’t we save the tomboy stuff for later? Can’t she just be a toddler for now?
