A few months ago I was out shopping with my then two and a half year old daughter looking at a few shirts for her. We both liked one particular shirt and I asked the salesperson to get the shirt in her size. The salesperson looked confused and asked me me whether I wanted a shirt for a girl or a boy. Before I could reply my girl chirped in 'not girl or boy I want a shirt for me'. The salesperson simply grinned while I was filled with immense pride at the precious thing my daughter had just said.
