We’re So Stereotypical

My therapist was telling me today that she was reading a recent study that confirmed what we all knew. Men are the daredevils and women are the snugglers.

She said that in childrearing, men generally did better at the exploration tasks (as in, letting them fly across playground equipment at frightening speeds) and women were better at nurturing tasks (as in, giving oodles of hugs and kisses when they have an owie).

We totally proved this theory in our house this weekend. My son, who will 99% of the time pick Dad over me for ANYTHING, wanted me all weekend while he was sick.

Am I wrong if I admit I enjoyed it?
