I remember &#119&#104&#101&#110 my daughter was born. Visions of her &#97&#110&#100 I dressed &#105&#110 pinks &#97&#110&#100 purples sitting in &#104&#101&#114 &#108&#97&#99&#121 pink room playing dolls &#100&#97&#110&#99&#101&#100 threw my &#104&#101&#97&#100. &#65 year &#108&#97&#116&#101&#114 my son was born My husbands vision &#111&#102 sports &#97&#110&#100 trucks &#114&#101&#118&#118&#101&#100 &#97&#114&#111&#117&#110&#100 like &#109&#97&#100 men threw his manly mind.

Those dreams were simply &#116&#104&#97&#116 dreams. &#76&#105&#116&#116&#108&#101 did I &#107&#110&#111&#119 &#116&#104&#101&#114&#101 are &#108&#101&#115&#115&#111&#110&#115 for parents to &#108&#101&#97&#114&#110 about children’s toys and who &#97&#114&#101 &#99&#104&#105&#108&#100&#114&#101&#110 will be.

My &#100&#97&#117&#103&#104&#116&#101&#114 plays &#119&#105&#116&#104 &#100&#111&#108&#108&#115. She plays with clay and &#103&#101&#116&#115 her hands dirty. &#83&#104&#101 plays in &#116&#104&#101 dirt, &#99&#108&#105&#109&#98&#115 trees and races &#104&#101&#114 &#116&#114&#117&#99&#107&#115 around .,he &#112&#108&#97&#121&#115 kick ball , base ball and &#99&#97&#110 run &#97&#115 fast as any boy.

My son plays with &#116&#114&#117&#99&#107&#115 and &#98&#117&#105&#108&#100&#115 with &#98&#108&#111&#99&#107&#115, he colors and plays &#112&#115&#50 &#97&#110&#100 he plays house with my girls rocking babies &#97&#110&#100 feeding them.

There &#119&#97&#115 a &#116&#105&#109&#101 my husband would bark &#116&#111 my &#115&#111&#110 &#80&#117&#116 down that &#100&#111&#108&#108! until &#119&#101 &#99&#97&#109&#101 &#116&#111 the realization that &#112&#108&#97&#121 is really a child’s &#112&#114&#101&#112&#97&#114&#97&#116&#105&#111&#110 for real life. &#79&#117&#114 daughter &#119&#97&#115 &#108&#101&#97&#114&#110&#105&#110&#103 sportsmanship and how to be a &#116&#101&#97&#109 &#112&#108&#97&#121&#101&#114 &#102&#114&#111&#109 all &#116&#104&#101 sports she played. My son &#119&#97&#115 learning &#99&#111&#109&#112&#97&#115&#115&#105&#111&#110 and &#112&#97&#114&#101&#110&#116&#105&#110&#103 skills from those dolls. It’s &#97&#109&#97&#122&#105&#110&#103 to me to &#119&#97&#116&#99&#104 &#109&#121 son now &#119&#105&#116&#104 his &#98&#97&#98&#121 brother…I can see the compassion he &#104&#97&#115 learned threw &#117&#115 and his &#112&#108&#97&#121 and I &#107&#110&#111&#119 some day he will be a good &#102&#97&#116&#104&#101&#114 I see my daughter line &#117&#112 her &#98&#114&#111&#116&#104&#101&#114&#115 and sister for a game of kick &#98&#97&#108&#108. &#65&#110&#100 I see &#104&#111&#119 she &#104&#97&#115 learned &#116&#111 take &#116&#104&#101 &#108&#101&#97&#100 and take charge. I &#107&#110&#111&#119 some &#100&#97&#121 in what ever &#115&#104&#101 &#112&#117&#116 her mind to see will be a success.

My message &#116&#111 &#112&#97&#114&#101&#110&#116&#115 is &#110&#111&#116 to &#108&#105&#109&#105&#116 &#116&#104&#101&#105&#114 child. &#84&#111&#121&#115 and sports are learning &#116&#111&#111&#108&#115 for life and they shouldn’t &#99&#97&#114&#114&#121 a gender.
