I actually had noticed for some time that when she drew a picture of me, my head looked ... square. But I didn't put it all together until she brought her creation home and proudly spread it across the table. She had 5 figures drawn all in a row and a heading that read, "My Family."
One very large stick figure with a round head, a slightly smaller figure with a square head, and three small figures with square heads completed her drawing.
It dawned on me. Round heads were boys, square heads were girls.
"You've got it wrong, sweetie. Boys should be the block heads, I mean, the square heads."
