On behalf of Mothers of dashing young boys everywhere, I'd like to extend the proverbial olive branch, or maybe it's more of a dangling carrot. Can we be friends? I can't figure out why there is a divide between us. No, our boys don't wear adorable little clippies and homemade headbands in their hair, but they do look pretty cute in an argyle sweater vest. No they don't dress up like princesses, but they enjoy dress-up clothes of a masculine variety: superhero capes and fireman hats. And when you are enjoying activities together such as swimming and playing at the park of course we'd love that too.
I promise our sons won't ogle you daughters in their bathing suits if that's what you're worried about (I couldn't come up with any "rational" reasons). Although, truth be told, your daughters will probably end up messier after playing with our boys, boys just really love making messes, that's all. And maybe there will be more arguments and differences of opinions to work through, but is that really such a bad thing? They need to learn how to get along eventually. And we mothers of boys just think our sons would love playing with your girls, and think that your daughters lives would be equally enriched through their friendships with our sons. So we hope you'll consider giving it a try.
One last thing. As mothers of boys we are still women. Just because we didn't produce any female offspring doesn't mean we don't enjoy quality girl-time anymore. So when you are getting together with all the other Moms of cute little girls, please consider calling and inviting some of those other women along. (You know, the Mothers of dashing young boys.)
Eagerly awaiting your response,
