Conversations About Boys With My Three Year Old

We were baking cupcakes for the baby’s birthday and Mia was giving me the plot summary of her latest Barbie movie.

A mean guy told Barbie that she needed to marry him in three days or he would turn all of her friends to stone.

I asked her if Barbie wanted to marry the mean guy and she said

“No, she wants to marry the prince.”

I said “That’s because the prince is nice and you should always marry someone who is nice to you. That’s why I married Daddy. He is so nice to me and treats me like a queen.”

She thought about it for a minute and seemed satisfied with my answer, but a moment later she asked

“Mommy, did you ever have any mean guys in your life?”
