I was trying to tell Ella that she is getting a bit too heavy for me to carry. She enquired if her dad would still be able to carry her and I confirmed that he probably could because he is a man and men are usually stronger than women.
Ella – Is papa a man?
Me – Yes, papa is a man. And I am a woman.
Ella – I want to call him a boy.
Me – If he’s ok with that, that’s fine.
Ella – Because it’s not my favourite thing.
Me – What’s not your favourite thing?
Ella – Men are not my favourite thing. That’s why I want to call him boy.
