Oh – to be a woman!
March 8, 2013

tobeawomanMe: Did you know that today is International Women’s Day?
D: What’s International Women’s Day?
Me: It’s when women – across the world – celebrate being women.
D: Do mens have one?
Me: No.
D: Oh – that’s not fair!
Me: Well, a long time ago, men got to do everything and women didn’t get to do anything at all – so now that we can, we celebrate it! Men don’t need to celebrate.
D: But that was a long time ago, before I was born, so I didn’t get to do everything!
Me: You can help celebrate today – because you’ve got a lovely mummy who’s a woman!
D: Mmmmm… You know the Plough pub in Stony Stratford? Well, when it was ages ago and men got to do everything – was that when the Plough was a school?
Me: It could have been, yes.
