Boy or Girl?

AA Pic of the Week Before I tell you about the latest visit to Sweden to see my son and family, in particular my new grandson, which will be in a separate post, I want you to take a look at this photo.

My son and partner (they will eventually get round to getting married one day) always claim, and rightly so, that they do not want to treat a girl or boy differently, purely based on gender. Amanda has both dolls and toy cars, and she is particularly fascinated by tractors, diggers and other big machines. They also try to avoid pink clothes and toys, but despite all this effort I spotted this lot all pegged up last year. It is not easy being a conscientious parent. Will little brother's clothes line look the same, I wonder?

So they still like pink?
What book are you writing in Swedish? Fiction? Memoir?

GW - Pink in moderation, is perhaps their motto. Book is fiction based on youth memories, so a bit of both, I suppose.
