A man does his best to build a sense of masculinity in his son, only to have him buy women's jeans. For some reason my oldest son decided that he wanted a pair of women's pants in his wardrobe. I still don't understand why - something to do with the stretchiness of the fabric and the fit!? The fact that he works on a construction crew all summer helps counteract my misgivings of his gender identification. He and Jenny were down for the weekend, which was nice because we will be splitting up as a family for a few weeks-Bjorn working, Markus and Calvin to Mexico, and Esther and I to Texas.
