Is there an inherent difference between girls and boys? For all the gender neutralising – and the fact that Noodles has the girliest at scream of anyone I know – I think there is.
If you asked Boo if she wanted to make a jam she’d have her pinny on and be boiling fruit quicker than you could say ‘Robinsons.’
Ask Noodles if he’d like to make a jam, however, and he’d have his box of toy cars out faster than you could say ‘Jeremy Clarkson’ and have them lined up along the floor.
We have so many of these lines of toy cars around the house I’m surprised we don’t get a mention on the traffic report. Especially as some of these vehicles remain gridlocked for days on end.
Mind you, I’d dread to think of the mess were we to let Noodles loose on crushing strawberries, so maybe it’s for the best.
