A Gendered Response


There is nothing so good for the soul as watching the bond of two cousins form and grow. My favorite moment occurred on a typical rainy Tuesday. Breakfast was through and Audrey and Silas were busy drawing. When Uncle Jordan asked Audrey to describe her picture, she said, "This is my mom and this is my dad and they're hugging. And this is me and this is my baby sister, Evangeline."

"Nice," said Uncle Jordan. "Silas, what are you drawing?"

Silas threw his father a swift, concentrated glare and responded as any self-respecting three-year-old boy would: "This is an eyeball," he said, and promptly resumed drawing.

Adorable! At least it was an eyeball, and not a sword or a gun or some other object meant for combat. So great that they have each other....
