Welcome to the 21st century

It's the start of a new semester for my kids and that means new after-school classes. I just realized that for today Jee (male) is going to Knitting class (and he is So Psyched!) and Aee (female) is going to Science class (she begged & begged for that class over all others).

I worry, for good reason often, that my kids have a too-traditional parent set and that my/Eee's role model will make it harder for my kids in the long-run.

Today's little classes are a bit comforting. There was no talk of "this is for boys/girls" when they picked their afterschool classes. They are pursuing their interests. Period.
