I took my son to meet some friends at Kirkwood Park for an afternoon of sledding…and I quickly realized a major difference in how the boys and girls approach this activity. Read on for my assessment of the situation and more pics!

I noticed yesterday that the girls showed up in cute pink jackets and jaunty hats with pom poms. They lined up at the top of the hill and took turns gracefully gliding down the slope.

The boys ran and jumped on their sleds belly first, hoping to crash into something on their way down, yelling things like, “Major Air, Dude!!”

Here’s my son bouncing off a tree:

And as far as I could tell…the tree crash was on purpose. Sigh.
