Cray cray

Roc, last week, when at our local shopping centre, you needed to go to the loo. So, off we went. Into the ladies.

You looked at the black picture synonymous with female amenities the world over, and asked what it was.

I explained it was the female bathrooms, and you could tell because the triangle was supposed to be a skirt.

You were quite perplexed at this, and wanted me to confirm that boys wear skirts too. I said they could, but in all honesty, it wasn't something you would see around that often, for no particularly good reason.

You came back - quick as lightening - with "But what about in Scotland mama? Boys wear skirts in Scotland. They're called kilts."

Yes, darling, that's right. They do!

"And in ummm mustin? countries? Is it mustin? They have dresses there."

Yes, darling, in muslim countries, men do wear long clothing that looks a bit like a dress.

"And in Fiji and other places? Boys have skirts there."

Yes, my darling, you amazing boy. They do.

"Ohhhhh, so it's just in Australia that it's cray-cray."

Yes, my darling. It is.

I love you, my beautiful, inquisitive, clever little three year old. I hope your open-mindedness remains untarnished by this cray-cray world.
