Ungendering a conversation with a two-year-old is really tricky. I hadn't realised how fixated Gnome was on who is related to who how and who this person is and why they are there. Conversations with other parents at the playpark required "this one" and "that one" and "yours" and "mine" which are, ironically, quite respectable ways to refer to kids, so nobody actually raised an eyebrow. Other than at the trike. Then the library required "Give your card to the person at the desk" which probably caused less comment than my usual habit of saying "woman" rather than "lady".

Most slip-ups so far have been in responding to Gnome's "What's Sam doing?" enquiries.
