MY FOUR YEAR OLD COUSIN WATCHING ME GET READY

  1. 'Are you putting makeup on so your friends don't have to see the spots (freckles) on your face?'
  2. 'No, why?'
  3. 'That's what mummy says.'
  4. 'No, I just like to wear it. Lots of girls do. But some boys do too. If you want to wear makeup, you can.'
    Realised half way through I wasn't being gender neutral and tried to fix it.
  5. '...oh. But you have freckles on your arms too. Why don't you put makeup on there too?'
    He kind of has a good point.
  6. Then he made me put my 'special face cream' on him too.
