Please Give Me the Strength

to look the other way, when he plays dress up with his sisters, to keep from wincing when he says "I'm not the king! I'm the queen!",
to walk away when I hear him say "I wanna wear the dress Stella has on."
and to not panic, as he will turn out, however he's supposed to.

Ok but really, Uh, when do I panic?
Because despite that I've read it's 'healthy'
for boys to play with dolls and dress up occasionally,
this is slightly unnerving.

The dress up trunk may need to offer a different selection of
costumes soon. Or I need to be stronger, better at walking away,
and not lose sleep over 'the lady man'.
