A school-related experience my parents didn't have.

My wife sat down with my daughter and her class roster. She read the names off to our four-year-old and asked, in each case, is this a boy or a girl? When I was a kid, my parents could look at the names of the kids in my class and know their sexes in all but a few cases (such as kids named things like Kyle). Now it's reversed. In all but a few cases, we have to ask.

Don't mistake me here. I'm glad she's in a class with many colors and cultures. I want her to grow up and not find this situation as foreign as her dad does.
