Without this Christmas gift system, I really feel like it would be difficult to know where to stop. I’d probably keep picking things up because they were cute, or fun, or a good price, etc. until I had way too much.
Unmasked kids combined with potentially removing face mask requirements one week into the new school year, and you’ve got a perfect storm for worried, anxious parents.
Instead of “boy” or “girl,” it’s just as easy to say “child” or “kid” or “student” or “person.” It’s also just as easy to refer to someone as “they” if you don’t know their preferred pronouns. It gets easier the more you do it, too.
