A couple of days ago my father and I went birthday shopping for my niece/his granddaughter, who's turning two, and he immediately zeroed in on a pair of dark grey cargo-like pants that'll be perfect for playing outside. It didn't even occur to him to look in the frilly dressy girl section of the shop. I helped him find a really cute sweatshirt type jacket to go with it, and that was that. Ten minutes of looking and goal successfully accomplished.

I love so much that he doesn't really see her as a girl at all, but as a child first. I have still never seen him treat her any different than her boy cousins and it makes me so happy. And he's not even very aware of gender and feminism and all that stuff. He just innately seems to get it.

My father is the best.
