Visiting relatives. Doing 100-piece jigsaw puzzle with preschooler. Puzzle showed sparkling pony in candy colors.

Kid: "Why do you like doing girly puzzles?"
Me: "Whether it's girly or not, I like doing puzzles."

Not my children, no other adults around. What would you have said?

@teatime "I like doing girly things and boy things. I think it's fun."

@teatime We had to explain it to one of the kids' friends

@teatime The way most kids do; they shrugged it off at first and then got curious later when we were playing with dolls with the other kids.
