My Little Male Chauvinist

Little Man: "Mommy, can you build train tracks with me?"
Me: "Yes, I can...." (I then proceed to rock that train track...Little Man was totally impressed, so was I!)
Little Man: "Mommy, can you help me put the trains on the track?"

Me: "Yes, I can..."
(Little Man proceeds to drive the train all around the track...)

Me: "Do you need any help driving the train?"
Little Man: "No Mommy, girls can't drive trains...only boys can."

Hmmmmph...gonna have to work on that little opinion:/
On a completely unrelated note...Have you found Blog Trotting?

Well, you must go check it out! Remember that five mile virtual jog we went on? Well, that was for Blog Trotting (the brain child of Not to Brag, and Land of Bean). Fun, no?

In a nutshell, five days a week, they highlight a blog somewhere in the world...and off you go...Go check it out!


  1. Ha! Sounds like something a male would say. We can help do the work, but not reap the reward!

    Too cute.

    Hugs and Mocha,

  2. Ha ha! Those comments are so unintentionally insulting aren't they?

  3. Hmm, wonder where he gets that from?? Great tracks, btw! At least girls are good for something. :)

    Thanks for the shout out! And thanks for bring a part of BlogTrotting!

  4. Interesting he let you build it but not drive it... You must show him how awesome you are at driving those trains as well..

    He's a cutie btw.

  5. Guess you'll just have to show him you can wear the conductor overalls, too! It's so interesting where/how their little minds pick up on society's nuances about gender, no matter how much we try to keep it neutral or equal.

  6. I'm pretty sure his hidden meaning was more like, "thanks for the help, but I'll do the fun part!"

  7. Oh, he'll learn. It may be the hard way, but he'll learn.

  8. Do you know "Gonna Be An Engineer"?

  9. Reminds me of when my daughter told me that "mommies don't drive cars." I'm like, "Oh, really?!"

  10. That start learning awful young. At least he thinks you can build things. That is a plus.
