the eric update – day 483: do boys have a genetic predisposition for enjoying playing with ( and smashing up ) toy cars?

while we’ve tried to be sensitive to reinforcing gender stereotypes with odin particularly when it comes to playing with toys and have actively encouraged him to play with dolls, we have to admit that he seems to much more interested in playing with his toy automobiles than he ever has been with role playing with dolls.

can we blame male genetics? or maybe we’re discounting the effect of his pops’ interest in antique muscle cars?

whatever the cause, he sure seems to know how to get coax a smile from grandma sondra 🙂
