The other day, my son held the door open for some women who were coming into a restaurant behind us. While they noted how nice and well-mannered he was, he did this little silly bow thing and said "Ladies first."
No, that's not why I think I've failed as a Feminist Mama.
See, when he said, "Ladies first," I began to hum this...
Publish Posted me, "Mama, what is that?"
"It's 'Ladies First' by Queen Latifah. From when she used to rap," I explained.
And he said,
"Mama, Queen Latifah used to rap?!"
He was shocked!
So was I.
