Another shared topic of conversation between Curious Girl and a Scrivener girl. Politica is out of town, visiting her ailing father, and Curious Girl had this to say when they talked this evening:
Curious Girl: Mommy, what are you doing?
Politica: I'm at the grocery store getting some medicine.
CG: Mommy, you're a daddy.
P: Curious Girl, that's silly. I'm a mommy.
CG: No, you're a daddy.
P: Can I be a daddy and a mommy at the same time?
When I asked Curious Girl why she wanted Mommy to be a Daddy, she just said "I don't know" (but then, she's a little younger than Ella, who articulated a more specific reason for her genderbending desires).
The funny thing is, years ago we had friends with a probably 3 year old son who divided all pairs of animals and people into mommys and daddys, and he definitively stated on more than one occasion that Politica was the daddy in our family. Go figure.
