Always thought that when I have kids I’d want them to be boys but now I think I want girls too. I want raise a little girl who knows that she be anything she wants to because her parents will support her just like they would for a son. I want to raise a girl that can wear a princess dress to parties if she likes, she can have a toy kitchen set for Christmas too, if she wants one. But more importantly if she wants to go to a fancy dress party as a doctor, firefighter or a superhero, she can do that too. If she wants to play with dolls she can, but if she wants to build the tallest tower out of Lego, I’ll help her when she needs picking up to put more blocks on top. I’ll go looking for spiders with her like I used to when I was younger, but if she’d rather learn to dance, I’ll drive her to her lessons.
I just want to raise a daughter who will always have the world at her feet, who will proud to be a girl and know that her life has no gender boundaries. And if I have a son, well he can be an action hero if he likes, he can play with wrestling figures too but if he wants to dance ballet, he can dance ballet.
