So all week we've been working on our bathroom for one week and it's still not done. I'm very sad because I wanted to use my cool new tub this week. However, since it's not done that means it will be MY project to finish. I hate following Brandon around getting stuff for him. It's not because he doesn't think I can't do it, it's just the rolls we fall into most.

Which brings me to thinking... Is this what we are teaching our children. I'm so thankful that my parents taught me so much. My mom spent hours in the kitchen teaching me to cook and my dad spent hours teaching me how to use tools in the garage. I want my kids to be just as well rounded, but I also want to keep them from falling to the stereo typical male-female rolls.

I'm lucky enough to have found Brandon who does let me take the lead and be in charge of projects at times too. I insisted I do all the tile work in my bathroom this week. He was really good about changing rolls and letting me take charge. Ideally this how I want my boys to work with their significant others all the time. But how do you teach this skill? Is it really taught or is it just something they have or don't have? Things to ponder.
