Aren't we all human?

DD and I were still on the subject of human beings today. Progress is slow in SubCasa, what can I tell you. This morning she asked me, "Mommy, are we all human beings?" To which I replied, "Yes, we are," thinking she was talking about SubFamily. DD was more globally oriented, and asked, "We are all human beings? Even boys?"

I didn't have the heart to tell her the truth - that the jury is still out on that one - plus, this is something she should figure out on her own. So I quietly nodded while her brother was busy combining hanging upside down with bothering the baby, throwing down toys, making wild noises and destroying something, over which he would endlessly cry only five minutes later. "Yes, sweetie, even boys." DD is pretty bright, just reread her question if you need proof. Do you think she bought it?


  1. Maybe the question is still out about boys, but women are definitely not people.
