Each day, laptop and children permitting, I’ll share a prompt that’s been on my mind, and a few of my thoughts.
You are welcome to share your own perspective in the comments, or just journal it out!
Do I believe there are different gender roles?
Joe and I have been wondering about this, and I’d love to get your thoughts.
While I wouldn’t say I’m a feminist necessarily, I also don’t believe “the woman’s place is in the home”.
I worked while pregnant with both of my kids, and for the first few years of my daughter’s life.
I love staying home with my kids now, and sometimes there are things I miss about work, too.
That’s part of the reason this blog exists.
As another example, y’all know I can’t cook 🤣. I do okay with the crock pot, I suppose, but I can’t tell you how grateful I am for a man who knows how to make a 5-star dinner.
We’ve always tackled our marriage (and parenting) as an equal partnership.
That said, Joe is usually more easy-going; I’m definitely more anxious. …And probably more open with my emotions in general 😂.
We connect with the kids differently. He wrestles with them. I ask them about their feelings, etc…
Is it an over-generalization to see those as gender differences? Are there different personality traits among the genders?
What do you think?
