While teaching Jonah a lesson in responsibility recently, I was reading the chapter titled 'Responsibility if you have a Sister'.
I read "They cry, get their feelings hurt, and show emotions more than most boys. They are also made smaller and more delicate than boys."
He looked at me puzzled and asked, "what does the word delicate mean?"
While I was searching my brain for a more understandable word for him, he replied, "is that kind of like irritating?"
I suppose to him it probably is. Girls are such unique, complex beings for a five year old brother to understand.
