I was about halfway home from school this afternoon, cruising along peacefully in the bike trailer, when I decided it was as good of a time as any:
"Yes, hon?"
"I wanna turn into a boy."
There was a silence that I didn't fully expect and then a rather silly question:
"Why is that, Nona?"
"Boys ride bikes!"


We began lessons in earnest immediately upon our arrival home.

Ok. Deep breath. Girls can do this, too. Sweet.
