More about Caroline's Gender Awareness

When you live with a three year old, you tend to have the same conversation over and over. Recently, I've been having the following variation on the "grow up to be a daddy" conversation, which I mentioned yesterday.

Caroline: When I grow up, I'm going to be a daddy like you.
Me: Well, maybe, but...
Caroline: And when Joseph grows up, he will be a daddy.
Me: That's more...
Caroline: And when Mommy grows up, she'll be a daddy.
Me: No, we've been over this...
Caroline: That makes one, two, three, four daddies.

About the only variation is that sometimes she counts five daddies.
