The yellow field flowers were out in bloom so we spent a moment picking some. Then the boys asked (demanded) to put them in their hair. I pulled out some bobby pins from mine and skewered them to the sides of their heads.
JJ just ran off; mission accomplished. But Malachi said excitedly: "Now I'm a little girl!" I laughed and said: "Yep, now you're a little girl."
Malachi thought for a long while and then said: "To be a baby boy, you do nothin'."
I laughed for a long time then but didn't know what else to say. Just 3 years old and already learning that little boys can just be little boys but little girls require something extra.
